While a long day of work may drain the mind of creativity, boredom drove this piece to fruition.

Inspired by the simplicity of the representation of the body in some of Matisse’s works, this photo essay sought to recreate these intricate poses.

As the human figure is central throughout Matisse’s work, it was important to play with the ways the model’s body could bend to recreate his cut-out figures. The set was created by hand, inspired by his gouache paper cut-out forms. 

Inspired by Henri Matisse.
