Triadic Ballet

Personal Project

These illustrations are a series of experimental collages inspired by Oskar Schlemmer's 'Triadic Ballet' from the Bauhaus era. The focus of this project was to deconstruct contemporary fashion photography and reconstruct using handmade texture and geometric shapes to create something reminiscent of Schlemmers original creations.

 Conceptually my approach was to explore the notion of abstraction of the human body; the idea of reducing the figure to its most basic components. By stripping away much of the background noise and rendering everything in black and white, I was able to explore form and function in an arbitrary manner that was compositionally liberating and free.
