Starting the statement

MA update:  I'm fast approaching the deadline for our latest written assignment.  The brief is described as a 'practitioner's statement', yet the required word count is 3000 words.  Whenever did an artist's statement need to be so bloody long?  So, here goes ...

The complex and subtle relationships between our bodies, our clothes, and the jewellery and objects we carry or wear are often assumed and taken for granted.  My current practice is an exploration of the relationships between skin, clothing and wearable objects. What happens when the aesthetics of one are echoed by the other two?  Is there a point at which one can function as another, visually or otherwise?  What is the impact of removing one of the three from the equation?  

There, done.  Now what to do with the other 2,919 words.
