Flesh (2017) is a work that speaks a conflict of violence and calm, ecstasy and despair, beauty and pain. It plays with notions of flow, transition, introspection, vulnerability and limbo.
Combining painting and 2D digital animation with a figurative style, the complex composition of bodies is a large mural of life-sized nudes acting as a contemporary otherworldly tableau, over which the animated bodies are projected in floating gestures. It is a confrontation of darker tones, while simultaneously being a dance of sorts.
It was exhibited at the Dunedin School of Art graduate show “SITE” in November 2017, and acted as my final project at art school.
