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.
