Hidden Creatures

I am interested in the psychology of protection. How do we create various shields to hide behind? In this research I experimented with the use of pleasant flower patterns. This distractive camouflage is aimed at diminishing the transparency of my forms and preoccupying the viewer with the object’s surface rather than its inner life.

Contrasting shapes and materials express disharmony. Clumsy heads and legless bodies dressed in elaborate fabrics are suspended from their exterior tubular steel frameworks. Without such imposed structures these lumpy creatures, in lack of their own backbone, would inevitably melt into the floor.
