ON BEAUTY

On Beauty was a SELECT Solo Project during Art Basel Miami, 2014. This multi-sensory, site-specific installation's focus was on ethereal and carnal Beauty.

A photographic spectacle which embraced voyeurism, the human form, perversion of art history symbolism, and iconography was achieved through the creation of a 28 x 12-ft installation in the public sphere made out of locally sourced flora and fauna. 

Passer-byers and SELECT attendees participated by posing in the installation while I photographed myself and  them in highly stylized tableaux vivants. Silicon masks of my face were made from a life cast and often worn by participants. 

Daily shoots resulted in a series of limited edition photographs.

The photographic experience was sponsored by Real Doll , The New Hotel,  and received critical acclaim via Vulture & Artnet.
