Paint my own skin

Paint my own skin is an action developed from the metaphor of me being my own mask. For that, I’ve painted my own skin to delimitate the bounds for the garments and also I’ve painted different garments with different parts of my body. With this exercise I’ve tried to transfer my skin to the fabric and my body to the garments.

With this intention I’ve chose different skin tones fabrics to paint with black ink. Then I draw different parts of my body, they’re not chosen randomly, those have sensitive meaning for me.

I’ve paint 6 times by body under one order, delimitate your body. The repetition of this act gives me the boundaries for 6 different interior garments of the collection.

In the end the cracks from my body stays at the garment and it became cracks from the garment to other bodies.
