| EXPLORATION OF NATURAL PHENOMENON, MOON PHASES AND THE HUMAN CONDITION |

"This capsule collection of garments is heavily inspired by notions of the world’s natural balance of nature alongside man.  I have been drawn to the power of the natural world, its wonders and in turn where we belong in that environment.  I have focused on a hyper-real alternate perspective of the world with research into the relation between natural occurrences and man; the affect of a closer orbiting moon on the mind and body; human vulnerability to the elements.  The hauntingly empty landscape prints  of photography artist Murray Fredericks in series ‘ Salt’ was a heavy influence in the direction of my research.  I also felt moved by French film director Lars Von Triers’ art house film ‘Melancholia’ in which I saw parallels to my thoughts on the beauty and respect of natural wonders and the planet, but with that, an unsettling danger too.  The narrative, emotive photo-shoot aims to tell the story of this parallel world by utilising the vivid and bold use of materials,  dye-sublimation printed neoprene landscapes, matte glitter vinyl, hand quilted and bonded foam, heat tape, jersey and double faced ponti."
