L’appel de L’inconnu

How much do we actually know about our own body?

Despite the countless representations of the body that we have seen throughout history in paintings, drawings, newspapers, medicine and various social media, it can still surprise us.

L’appel de l’inconnu explores the unfamiliarity in the known female form and the compulsive drive we all have for beauty. This body of work questions contradictions and tensions; the known and unknown, soft and hard, inanimate and animate. The duality of these images elicits the uncanny as well as the visual perception of Gestalt.

Although the images are aesthetically pleasing, the core message that we must re-evaluate how we see, know and understand the female form remains.
