"I am particularly fascinated how covering the flesh with fabric can change our perceptions of the wearer, indeed change own perceptions of ourselves"
Australian-British artist, Gimara Duncan-Rice is inspired by the shape and structure of the human form. She grew up in rural Australia where she was exposured her to the unique colours and shapes of her environment. Growing up in the bush meant limited exposure to international art; holidays to visit family in Europe and Asia were enlightening (and at times overwhelming). Sewing provided a pathway that enabled one to be different when options were scarce. Initally self taught, she has since gone on to study Draping Womenswear and Patternmaking at UAL: Central St Martins (Granary square, London, UK).
