|Introduction||Being an artist with intentions to probe life around me I frequently rub up against an archive of observations and experiences that enables research and experimentation. This exploration revolves around three intersecting constants IDENTITY, CULTURE and NATURE which are all in perfect alignment at any moment in time. I discovered that FASHION allows me to push these constants into conceptually driven projects, as a way to explore the transformations of identity from our cultural past and global culture. Fashion ‘s mutability opens up the potential to fuse fantasy and reality in provocative and POETIC ways. You could call my conceptual apparel anything but uniform, however my art is about transformation and its imprints on identity. Among many aspects clothes can be one’s weaponry to project power, while also expressing ways we harness our power close to the body. I like to play with what’s both expressive and repressive in human life, with materials that are rigid and flexible, by way of revealing and concealing the human figure.|
