In my previous work I used coloured tissue paper to create a shape similar to female genitalia. With that I would light up the paper from behind which gave the results seen here.
The focus of the work was around sexual consent and I was finding ways to suggest the female body. What I love about this technique is the simplicity that gives a wide range images. The colour and appearance of the material gives a realistic/visceral look to the suggestive shape.
Now, I am working towards more surrealist works I tried this technique again but just with some simple scrunching of the tissue paper. Below is one of the best from this experiment:
What I love about this image is the depth and range of tones. It has the look of a painting, the swirling and cracking of blood. Below are some further examples from the experiment. Overall, this experiment has created some intense, visceral and dramatic outcomes.
