My work as an artist revolves around the captivating intersection of up cycled materials textiles/metals and underground fashion, with a particular focus on the enigmatic and mesmerizing world of XENON. Through my creations, I strive to challenge conventional notions of fashion and delve into the realm of the unconventional, pushing the boundaries of self-expression

Conceptual Statement: .XENON.XMB.BELT is a mixed media piece combining textile with metal work. It is a take on the mass consumption of garments and the effect of textile waste from the machine of consumerism. Fast fashion is a major contributor to the issue of textile waste, as it encourages consumers to buy cheap, trendy clothing that only gets worn a few times before being discarded. The use of metal scrap pieces in .XENON.XMB.BELT not only adds an intriguing visual element to the artwork, but also serves as a reminder of the potential for creative upcycling and repurposing of materials that might otherwise contribute to the growing problem of waste in our society. * Ring + Bracelet shown on the model are a continuation in submission # 2
