Donna Huanca

Uses skin as a canvas and explores colour, contrast and pattern this exploration applied straight to the skin is a fascinating way to explore the nature and character of clothing.
"A lot of my works, in the beginning, were all related to clothing because I was nomadic. It was always about bundling up and carrying everything you own and have on your body. A lot of it was binding and hiding the body, and protection of the body. Slowly it started to disrobe and become about the skin. A blank canvas." Donna Huanca
