I Am Human

2012 ArtPrize Entry

Diversity of the human form is celebrated in the innovative medium of body paint, a method of expression used throughout time to transform the body from an object of function into something of worship and wonder. The artist has worked with models who have transcended a negative body relationship to embody acceptance and gratitude for their physical form. An uplifting approach to the pertinent topic of ‘body image’, I am human invites the audience to connect with what makes us unique, powerful and beautifully human. Classic black and white photography highlights the intricate body art. Viewers can also get involved with a colourful interactive piece capturing and contributing their own image to the exhibition.
