In 2017, I designed and curated my first complete face art series: Elements.
I took great care over every aspect of the project, from model and photographer casting, art and design, accessories, styling and composition of the images. Each element’s design has a consistent tribal aspect, with thick lines and dots. Each face features a gradient of colour corresponding with the element, that carries down from the brow line with a gentle fade off on the cheeks. I gave thought to the forehead features, considering the semi-circular frame that each would have and took great joy in tieing each element together with kindred detail.
Special thanks to Lucy, Grace, Shona and Harriet for modelling, and to Stephanie Rebello for photography.
