| 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."
