Artist, Fashion designer
This project explores the making and embodying of clothes that I defined by symbolic meaning and the creation of fictive characters. The focus of the work has been on creating knitted masks that encase the head and veil the face, with multiple holes that allow for various ways of wearing/seeing. By wearing the masks I played with shifting the personas of myself and the characters, through the abstraction of facial expressions. This project expands upon my interests in self expression through figurative art and potential for clothes to develop a life of their own.
