We are delighted to make available, a new body of work by Odette England. If this work is of interest to collectors, we urge a prompt purchase. There are a total of just twelve photographs in the series, available in just one limited edition of 1+1AP, with the artist proof retained by the artist.
With Remarks About My Body, Odette England explores the notion that 'we are what we wear', and the psychology of dress. The photographs reference the changes the artist experienced in her body—and with wider priorities—through motherhood.
"Clothing affects perception, and putting on different clothes can dramatically change mood", says England. "The negative space is just that—the space of my body now, variants in skin tone and texture. In some ways I was what I wore but am no longer. My body has become more flesh-like and abstract and there are things, physical and emotional, that no longer fit".
Remarks About My Body is informed by the research of Professors Hajo Adam and Adam Galinsky, whose paper 'Enclothed Cognition', discusses the systematic influence that clothes have on the wearer's psychological porcesses [used with kind permission].
