Utilising the landscape in conjunction with more personal, the photographs are from a broader body of work that explores the body and its' potential as a sculptural, sexual and performative entity. They are an expression of freedom through visual syntheses and abstractions between the body and its' immediate environment. Referencing classical and Romantic notions of beauty and aesthetic value, 'In Formalities' traces the discourse around form and gender politics yet subverts the manner in which "beauty" is conveyed, defined and experienced. Addressing these terms, the work aims to promote body positivity and a lack of inhibition through balancing form and function with the associative and depicted.
