The Fruit Basket takes the audience to a world (the art academy) which they might be unfamiliar with. You are allowed to take a look backstage, a concept that I really like and use throughout my practice because it plays on peoples curiosity.
This series is about my fellow students in their own respective studios. At first I envisioned it would be interesting to portrait them all in the nude as if this where their natural work environment or habitat. By portraying the students naked I realized that this also created something vulnerable and aggressive at the same time, it felt very voyeuristic and I imagined the audience to feel the same way.
