Soft Tissue presents glimpses of the female body abstracted. Obscured forms and fragmented anatomy transform the body into a dreamlike landscape. In this place, tropes of stereotypical female sexuality mingle and deform with the two artist’s own imaginary.Particular attention is drawn to the details of the body; its’ textures, protrusions, folds and the things often kept hidden. This focus carries an underlying sense of intricacy, animism and mystery. Anthropomorphic objects and materials merge with and distort these bodily forms so that what you’re looking at becomes elusive; unable to be classified. Rather, the viewer is encouraged to ‘feel’ the images and observe their own meanings and associations that take shape.
