These are some snippets of some of my work that I had up in the 'NOWHERE NEAR' Exhibition. A few of us got together to see what we've been doing since we graduated.
of course due to the summer we've all been enjoying ourselves and trying our hardest to appreciate the weather without forgetting about our art work, so here are a few images of my work.

I have had this one issue of LOVE magazine, where some of the worlds super models posed in the nude. I cant really remember when this issue came out but since I got i wanted to incorporate some of these images in my work so i thought the 'NOWHERE NEAR' exhibition would be the greatest chance for me to finally go through with an idea i've had for a while.

We were always told that models are merely hangers for the designers to show off their garments, so I had mixed feelings about see these ladies nude in a fashion magazine. Not that I have a problem with nudity: i throughly enjoy it- just ask my friends. but I bought a fashion magazine to see fashion...the photographs of kate moss, lara stone, naomi campbell etc etc where beautifully taken, yet I felt somewhat cheated.

Much like the emperors new clothes, it wasn't until some thought i realised i had been fooled. It could have been the idea of being able to choose which super model you wanted on the cover of the magazine, some how implying that you are given a huge choice in how the magazine will effect your life- but finding out that they all consist of the exact same content. either way i don't mind when marketing scams me, if anything i find completely impressing, and thats why i had to do this piece. I felt it as my duty to dress these beautiful women. much like the little papers toys i had growing up of ladies were you layered other pieces of cut out garments to cloth them.

Tell me your thoughts.
