This body of work explores the digital world of nudity, with electronically constructed images drawing on the age of digital obsessions. The security holes that leave us open and exposed are reflected in the naked bodies, and the cramp poses signify the way we are pushed in to boxes, both physically and mentally.
The subject matter in each piece is constructed of hundreds of photos taken from all angles around the body and digitally reconstructed. This is similar to a technique used in 3D design called ‘UV WRAP’ where a three-dimensional model is unwrapped into a flat shape to be coloured and texturised.
My process works in reverse, where I create a 2D plane, and ask the viewer to mentally reconstruct the image in to a 3D form using only their mind to manipulate the image.
I drew reference from Korean artist, Gwon Ohsang as well as David Hockney for his large scale photo collages, as well as my own background and interest in 3D modelling / animation and photography. By fusing all of these elements together, I have come up with this unique style of unwrapping and reforming the model in to visually intriguing pieces.
