Figurative paintings on clothes

Figures on Clothes, Oil / Mixed Media / Jodee Clifford
Four pieces from Figures on Clothes series, Oil / Mixed Media. 2003-2004. (L-R White shirt, Plaid dress, Nightshirt, Blue suede pants) 

Figures on Clothes

Figures on Clothes was one of my first series of paintings around 2003. I painted them with relationship ideas between clothing and the human form explored between subject matter and material. I painted nude female figures directly onto the surface of stretched and prepared clothing as I would on primed canvas.

In 2003, I started painting nude women onto the surface of stretched and prepared clothing as though it were canvas.

In revisiting the series, I’m bringing in some intimate and emotional elements. I plan to continue these.

Figures on Clothes

Figures on Clothes was my first series of paintings starting c. 2003. To me, they began with the relationship between clothing and nudity using the human form explored between subject matter and material. I painted these nude female figures directly onto the surface of stretched and prepared clothing as I would on primed canvas.
