The body is something that should be appreciated and viewed as its own individual self, all automatic connotations, pornography, gender and sexuality, should be removed allowing you to view it for what it is not what its associated with. Body portraits takes inspiration from classical Greek sculpture and how the Greeks believed that the nude was a celebration of physical beauty, expressing nobility and potential of the human spirit (Saunders. 1989:9). The environment in which I have placed the body in turns it into an object altering how you view and read it. The use of the paper transforms the body concealing it and drawing the viewer in to look beyond the surface as what is there.
