Tamara JamesFigures within outline is a body of work in which I began to explore Shape and Form.

Using paint on my subjects and photography I found it possible to capture the simplicity of the human figure. Stripping the figure of race, personality and flesh, allowing one to appreciate the simplicity of form without judgement and subjection.

The use of colour is reserved to monochrome which accentuates the essence of form and emphasises the impression of the figures captured in fine details in contrast with what is not seen.

The works are true to nature, where no photo editing and manipulation is incorporated in the form of the figures, the works are about the body becoming the canvas in its true nature.
