The Untitled Man is the avatar for creativity. This work marked my first foray into wearable art. This character was inspired by one of my Black Drawings series, which dealt with stages in the artist’s metamorphosis. To bring this character out of the drawing space, I started studying medical illustrations of various biological systems. I used my drawings to generate a new system, a “creatory system” on the body. I painted the motif onto a cotton unitard using fabric paint, and after sculpting a helmet and mask, the costume was finished in 2010.
I use photography and montage to explore The Untitled Man's narrative and relationship with different environments. At times I've used seamless photo editing to suggest a quantum state for the untitled man, where they are in 3 places at once.
