The Divine Anima
The female anatomy has often been depicted as excessive, destructive and eruptive to the mind. Reflection on death, being and mind, this project attempts to unravel a life at odds with all aspects. A ceremonial burial of the excess felt and the burden of the body to the mind. Portraiture is immortalisation of flesh. By playing with the surface of an image we see the murkiness of memory and the overwhelming emotions that often interfere with our recall to moments in time. A reminder that although the photograph may be immortalisation, flesh will succumb to nature, erosion and time. The melancholy and mourning of life still in motion but with the need to rid oneself of this imposed excess felt.
