Book of Gloves (2001)

The obstetricianThe morticianThe botanistThe volplanist

Book of Gloves is a continuing series of glove images alluding to the notion of the book of life or identikit. The glove, while concealing the fingerprint, becomes a second skin, which in the most minimal language codifies the identity of its human residue: ornithologist, volplanist, florist, chemist, etc. This confirms my interest in cloth/fabric and its ability to protect, conceal or reveal aspects of the human condition.
