A series of portraits to highlight the dualistic nature of body art. On one hand body art can be and often is self-expressive but much like any art it can be interpreted differently by each viewer. What then can be assumed about the individual by body art alone? Does the expressive nature of body art give us greater clarity in our presumptions of the individual or does the subjective nature of art taint our assumptions even further? This project renders the subject bare, leaving body art explicit in providing any revelations about the subject.
