Piece Work Collective

SELF PORTRAIT // PIECE WORK COLLECTIVE 2018

An abstracted physical rendering of my body in two dimensions. Curves were traced, then mapped out with ruddy tones and contrasting textures reminiscent of my skin. Sunburnt. Blushing. Pale. Hand-stitched at angles and lengths corresponding to those that compose myself. An intimate portrait of a self-perceived physicality.
