These soft sculptures were produced during the lock-down period in France from March-May 2020. Made during a time of great uncertainty, they, embrace random, unintentional processes. Most of the Skinscapes feature a warm color palette, derived from the artist’s own skin tones and from source photographs taken of residents of Pouzin, France, for a 2011 Public Art Commission.
Each piece can be shows in a vertical or landscape format, either as an independent wall-hung work or, potentially, on custom-designed metal armatures. The works are sewn with seams reinforced with a double stitch and filled with found and leftover polyurethane cushion stuffing. Evoking bodies, beds, couches, organs, and gym mats, the pieces are uncanny representations of imagined objects and places.
