Third Eye Flowering

For my exhibition Third Eye Flowering, I exhibited a series of 5 wire torsos. The number 5 was significant because the first wire torsos, The She Structures, began as a group of 5 as well. My interest in Carnival, costume, clothing and body adornment came together here with these torsos. A friend mentioned that they are reminiscent of the Fancy Sailor, a Traditional Masquerade from the Trinidad Carnival. With these torsos, I enjoyed building out beyond the form of the body and creating larger, layered and more complex silhouettes.
