My work tries to combine art and functionality through a series of conceptual clothing designs, which are sculptural pieces. I am exploring the link between The Artist and The Artisan. Ideas of empowering the female and expressing the changing role of the female have informed my art. I created a dress, rather than a sculpture representing bullet material, in order to highlight the femininity and vulnerability of the skin; in which a bullet would normally pierce and destroy, rather than protect. Like a magpie, I am attracted to shiny objects, excited by colour and am drawn to surfaces reflecting the light. Throughout this year I have been inspired by the sculptural qualities of haute couture and I have incorporated those design elements into my sculptures by producing ‘Wearable Art’.
