Pulling Forms: a series of fabric sculptures
A stunning art direction and photography series by Jess Bonham and Gemma Tickle.
Pulling Forms is an exploration into form and texture, cleverly capturing the relationship of fabrics, staging and colour. The simple, elegant and bold executions feel balanced and striking, taking our understanding of the materials into a world of art and sculpture.
Jess discovered connection when using photography as a medium during her studies into illustration, which shows through in the stripped back, graphic forms. She later teamed up with Gemma to explore the idea further and bring it to life.
“Our intention was to maintain a sense of integrity in forms that are created spontaneously, without analysis and fuss,” explains Bonham. “We were fascinated by the textural qualities of grain and stitch when shot through a macro lens.”
