Statement about AOAP Submitted Artwork
I am interested in the way in which people hold themselves, and how they decide to portray themselves to the world - in the way they stand, or sit, how they dress, how they enter a room, the
angle of their head, how close (or far apart) they stand in a group, how they engage with each other.
A person’s physicality betrays so many things, and I find this eternally fascinating. No matter how a person tries to ‘be’ there will always inherently be that telling physical moment when they reveal whats going on beneath the surface; perhaps in the way that they stand, or turn or even sit, a vulnerability behind the eyes. I am interested in how a person holds themselves, the angle of their head, the curve of their body, the way they rest their hand or arm in that moment.
