The mutant nude takes the concept of a nude. It is what inspired this piece. I turned the subject into being unrecognisable – the only trait allowing one to recognise it is the breasts. Though they have instead turned into eyes. They are watchful of the audience- judging the audience for gazing upon the nude. It’s sort of- the way that many would judge a nude, but instead, the nude is judging you.
It takes the gaze from the audience and becomes that gaze. It’s looking directly at you. It is supposed to make you feel judged and watched. It turns you into the nude itself.

MUTANT NUDE (2022)
This is inspired by a firework show that I went to recently. The colours explode in the air, captivating the audience in the canvas of the dark sky. Yet many consider it a spectacle rather than an abstract art piece. When a firework is lit- it ejects so much colour in random strays of patterns into the sky. It’s beautiful; it might be loud, but in reality, with the sounds dulled- it becomes a peaceful array of colours scattering every terrace of the night sky.
It must inspire peace within those who view it, the peace that the night gives. The abstract is a firework; therefore, the abstract is its style.
