form-alityTitle: AnklesArtist Statement: Many people struggle with body image issues throughout their life and I am no different. When talking about the human body, we most often talk about the negative. These images change the focus of the conversation by studying an individuals favorite part of their body. Before society structured the rules for us and determined how our bodies should look, classical Greek and Roman sculpture was the ideal or perfect human body. These priceless sculptures have endured much throughout history which has caused them to weather and crack, much like the bodies I have photographed have endured much through their life. The photographs in this body work depict this weathering ideal of perfection through the chosen body part emerging from cracked clay. The use of clay is a transformative experience through the image that converts the model into a sculpture of perfection.
DesecrationTitle: aquaArtist Statement: I wanted to document the afflictions Detroit has felt through the desecration and decaying architecture. For this body of work I focused on spatial awareness within the building, along with the geometry and symmetry of the architecture. While viewing the images, I want the audience to feel overwhelmed by the decay of these buildings, but also have admiration for the beauty of how they were desecrated by humanity and Mother Nature. These building have now become a canvas for all different kinds of art.
