"Together series The Look"

“The unnatural, if not fraudulent, high fashion ideal is depicted as a two dimensional and decorative veneer in these fallaciously constructed scenarios. The figures are depicted as two-dimensional mannequin like draped models, lacking both depth and character yet fully involved in the representation of ornamentation. The pursuit of the current correct or appropriate “Look” is insatiable and ever self-correcting. Concurrently there is a theatrical reference to Japanese Kabuki where the element of “Iroke” is prevalent. The mask like qualities evoke mystery, seduction and charm of real and unreal emotions that are meant to mesmerize the audience”.
