Exploring ideas to do with identity and the human body. Layering images of leaves, flowers and other natural forms on old family photographs introduces the notion of form, shape and structure being altered.
I did some bubble paintings to experiment with mark making and edited some… I like the idea of not being in complete control.
Elvira ‘T Hart is a recent fashion graduate whose latest collection puts 2D sketches to 3D garments. It is such a beautiful concept - seeing the creative process displayed on the finished garment.
“A lot of details contained within the first sketches are lost during the process of designing and executing clothing. By literally creating clothing patterns from the lines of sketches or sketching the patterns of clothing and cutting this out by laser, new shapes or suggestions of shapes are created. The clothing takes characteristics from the sketches: outlying lines, lines that trail off into nowhere and empty or unfinished areas. An image is reduced to lines, plans and areas which do not have to be fully formed or finished in order to portray their ultimate meaning:it stimulates the imagination.”
Matthew Brandt - “Two Ships Passing”
“In my photographs, it is interesting to reflect on photography’s inherent nature of passing moments with a fragile, fleeting and transient printing material or method. No matter how hard people will try to prevent a photograph or moment from fading, it always will.”
Beautiful photographs by Paolo Roversi for Vogue Italia
