I am too far behind to claim this as a discovery, but I’ve come to realize the significance of nudity in my current work. I now realise that the symbolism of using the female body is greater than only using it as a prop for it’s form or a general representation of self. I see that I can connect with it in order to symbolize moods, transitions and personality along with my totems; they work hand in hand. Nudity has many shades and many faces, it can depict freedom in one piece, and shame in another. It all depends on the story, it all depends on the time, just another form of a self portrait without using my face.
Now that I’ve finally stepped foot in the right direction, New York , South Africa and London doesn’t seem like a bad idea after all. I’m creating a bucket list, and I’m on a mission, starting off small and then making it a goal to work my way up, I can do this, I think, I hope; but, for now, I’ll do my best and enjoy what opportunity has come my way.
