SOFT EXTERIORS

 

November 2019

It's a cold, hard world out there, but that doesn't mean you can't be warm and soft. Being strong is about being vulnerable. How does it feel to be vulnerable? Where does it feel and with whom does it feel that way? The barriers we put up to avoid vulnerability are not representations of strength. Strength is the ability to be soft and to allow yourself to feel. In this swatch collection I explore shape and texture in relationship to the body's reaction to vulnerability. I mimic biological shapes, like human intestines and brain matter and develop them into soft exteriors.
