That Tan

Katie Hiskes's avatar Katie Hiskes

This is a part of a series I created in my last year at college. It begins with an obsession of color, uninterrupted color that I believe is beautiful when it adorns the body. I first recognized it when I started buying clothes in dark grey then saw a pattern appearing. Certain solid colors continued to show up in my wardrobe, jewelry and nail polish. This work represents a knowledge of the self in relation to beauty using clothes submerged in solid color to present a piece encouraging fashion for the sake of the self and no one else.
