For my art GCSE I have been studying artists Francis Bacon and Zhang Xiaotao. I have been focusing on the topic of decay and during this I've particularly been looking at carcasses, fruit and Vanitas style art. For my final piece I decided to do something with textiles as I think showcasing death on clothes is a good way of embracing it. I have noticed the hushed attitude of people regarding death and I feel like choosing to wear it defies that and it highlights how death is inevitable and a natural part of life.
Here are a few of my designs, I hope you like them!
