In the Absence of a Body

In the Absence of a Body is influenced by introspective thoughts and the process of coming to terms with one’s self. Drawing inspiration from organic matter, thought, and movement, this collection is a joyful reference to self-awareness and intuition. This is translated through the play of volume and negative space, with the aim of distorting the body in unconventional ways. Tone-on-tone colors are further used to emphasize proportion, texture, and silhouette.
