the BODY in ART…INSPIRATION

No, not body art.

There are no tattoos in this post…(I know! GASP! Shock horror!)

This mainly pictorial post looks at the body IN art.

Inspiration.

I came across these images as I was sourcing some image inspiration for my upcoming shoots (my first photo shoot is next week!)

Beautiful…

And then I came across these images from TheMagazine.Us. They look into the works of photographer Alex Brunet and how ‘rather than focusing on the beauty of the human body alone, Brunet juxtaposes each shot…with a true landscape or view of nature’.

Raw, intriguing, provocative, stimulating.

Take a look…

L-O-V-E this work.

True inspiration.

Self-Exposed.

The last few days have given me perspective…in a way like I’ve been self-exposed, hence, the title of this post.

I’ve been able to view my work in its entirety and just sit down, look at the whole picture and work out what it is I want to create and why.

And, I have.

And so, my inspiration is constantly evolving. Photographs of landscapes give me inspiration for colour palettes whilst artworks provide me insight into how a conceptual viewpoint can be presented.

I’ve collated some of my latest finds in the form of photographs, typography, layout and style so you can see what’s inspiring me to want to create my best work possible.

Perspective and time have been just what I’ve needed.

Inspiration seems to be flowing and I’m excited to see where it takes me.

Enjoy…

Welcome to FASHION. ART. BODY. SELF

Hi all,

Welcome to my blog!

It’s my final year in my Bachelor of Design in Fashion and Textiles, and this blog will serve as my inspiration outlet and way in which all you (hopefully) devoted followers of mine can be a part of the journey with me…

Oh yes, I said it…JOURNEY. Bet you didn’t think you’d hear ‘that’ word used again after HSC, did you?

Alas, this is what my past 4 years, and now this final year, has and will be for me. A long…but rewarding and sometimes stressful…but always exciting – JOURNEY.

This year, my work will be culminate in a media based major project, where I hope to create a brand new fashion-related magazine or hardcover book.

I aim to explore the relationship between fashion, the female body and art. I will be looking into how the construction (and deconstruction) of self identity is formulated through my areas of interest, and how certain artists have pushed the boundaries, redefined what is beautiful and transformed themselves to express what is possible when fashion, the body and art converge. I will be referencing particular art works and artists who deal directly with this issue, and I will aim to uncover the complex relationship between art and its influence on fashion, dress and the body, and vice versa.

My idea is still in its early stages, so please bear with me.

I’m eager and apprehensive at the same time, but one thing I can promise, is that this year is going to be one of the most exhilarating and exciting years of my life.

So, I look forward to you all sharing in it with me!

Without further ado, let the journey begin….(I know, I know….I just couldn’t resist!)

Oh, and one last thing, I’d love if you could follow my blog by clicking ‘follow’ at the top of the web browser, feel free to ‘like’ or ‘share’ posts via Facebook or other social networking sites and comments are always welcome!
