The concept behind my artwork is fast fashion and the many cases of abuse to which it is connected to. What my artwork represents is a teen who is saddened by the effect of fast fashion, but ignorant of their growing contributions to it. A figure with flowing hair is contrasted by the more explicit forms of fabric despite herself being made of fabric. She is the color of the ocean to represent its vast depth. This is representative of the growing production of clothing that gets larger every year; it almost seems that we’re drowning in a mountain of clothes. This is further enhanced by my chosen medium, consisting of fibrous materials (fabric and yarn) to emulate the materials used in the textile industry. The figure is closing her eyes to represent her ignorance of the problem as it grows around her. Despite the clothing, like I was alluding to earlier she is a part of the problem as well. Her rapid consumerism is taking hold of her life and hurting her simultaneously.
