Trapped IV (enlargement series)


Working on enlargements from previous works (in this case, Trapped IV)allows me to see them in another perspective and discover new ways of exploring them. With enlargements, I tend to saturate certain components like textures and colours, and make them the main focus of the work. I'm also almost doubling the layers of fabric I work on, and at the same time find myself very enthusiastically breaking the layered fibres and thereby discovering new textures and tones that were previously hidden and trapped beneath.
