My final major project is an exploration of the concept of evil through femininity and spirituality. Influenced by iconography, occultist symbolism and comedic horror. Through illustration I will be exploring this idea of evil femininity showing powerful and ambiguous feminine figures/creatures, along with symbols of death and hell derived from occultism/iconography such as dancing figures and fire. My second method of exploration is dyeing directly onto fabrics, my own personal take on spirituality. Dyeing processes act as a ritual with cathartic intention and reflect the imperfect beauty of nature. My third process of exploration is digital print, through photography and video I play with test samples through light, water and physical manipulation.
TESTING FILM - DREAMS, LIKE DISTURBING NOTES
Visualising my process through film, presenting it as a cathartic ritual and setting intention into my creations much like a spell or curse.
DYE DEVELOPMENT - RITUALS, CREATING 'SHROUDS'
I am interpreting my dye methods as rituals, forms of manifestation and therapy. The outcomes will be presented as Shrouds, originally symbols of Christianity, my Shrouds represent the process of self development and the female struggle.
