A piece which forms one part of four related series of work created during the first half of 2015 and focuses solely on the British super-model, icon and muse that is Kate Moss. Using found images from her Vogue Paris April 2008 and October 2009 photo shoots in combination with images going as far back as 1993, each work examines the human condition, dissecting the psychical personality while encompassing aspects of narcissism, gender and the life and death drives, as discussed by Freud.
These concepts are communicated through ‘breaking’ and ‘reforming’ the image(s), using regularly shaped blocks (and pixilated images) in combination with the straight and diagonal lines formed by sewing thread onto paper. Each piece embraces the idea of deconstruction and the spiritual importance of the line as explored by Dutch avant-garde, constructivist Theo van Doesburg. The colourpalette for this series was inititally inspired by the British luxury fashion house Burberry.
