‘Mannequin a day’ came to light or rather dark.. inspired by Noah Scalin’s blog ‘Skull-A-Day’. Photography and a love of styling of clothes as quite frankly I couldn’t fit them anymore but someone else could, my mannequin Magenta! Due to complications with my pregnancy, unfortunately I could not drive far or carry much, but I needed a good distraction so I decided to dress up Magenta every day, entering the land of creativity, yes escapism via art.
Magenta is adolescent in age & has a permanent seating position but she seems ok with that. I found at moments in time, after hours of photography, she almost comes to life as through the lens I get this feeling she is done for the day, respect..
When Mannequin-a-day started, I was unsure as to whether I was committing to a short duration or a continual project. So many ideas come to play, getting darker and more surreal in nature. An addiction has spawn! I wrote to Noah to express my thanks for being an amazing inspiration, Noah featured my art on his website ‘Make Something 365 and Get Unstuck’. This was simply ACE!
A newly titled ‘Mysterious Girl Magenta’ post is the continuation as my main focus is my beautiful ‘real’ girl Amelie.
