Nudes: Moiré, 2007
6, Individually framed
60 x 48 inches each
3 of 6 shown, 2 detail areas and Installation at Republic Gallery
By duplicating the grid of nude hosiery and rubbing the two nudes close together, I recorded the moiré pattern that occurs when two weaves do not match up and distribute their proportions unevenly. The result is a very organic pattern resembling knots on trees, tiger stripes, or optical illusions. The illusion changes dependent on the viewers positioning, or in this case -the positioning of the camera.
