I recently had an idea for a set of prints I wanted to produce. Since my work is dealing with layers of our personality, hiding certain parts of ourself, wanting to show your true colours and how that relates to clothing. Wearing certain clothing makes us feel differently, Like a costume, our choice of clothing also says alot about us.
I decided to create some simple screen prints to put this idea forward. The bold colours are a contrast to the type of clothing (suits, trousers) - associated with business men and office work. Usually blacks & greys dominate this type of clothing. However by using bright orange and green I'm commenting on the lack of individuality this clothing forces people into, and how uniforms make us all blend in.
When we see someone in a suit, how do we judge what type of person they are witohut any hint of their true self? whos under the suit?
