Fruiting Bodies, 2019-Present

In this series, I am focusing in on the feminine body and its connection to nature, life and decay. Much like a mushroom, women are situated at both ends of the life cycle.

The body language of the figures is drawn directly from pin-up shots and magazine spreads, creating a connection to the gaze and beauty, but the craggy, pitted texture of their 'flesh' denies a purely aesthetic reading. These are not bodies presenting themselves for your pleasure.
