This collection of sculptures is focused on the off beat creation of forms and representation of the body with no context. The use of an experimental approach and unconventional sculptural materials gave rise to dysmorphic bodily forms, which accidentally reference the natural environment through their surface texture and colour. The process of layering materials and colour creates bodily forms that when touched feel like cold skin. Referencing the works of James Lomax and John Issac and their contemporary grotesque approach to the body, Bodies out of context explores the representation of the body though materiality and form.
