Violet à la base du cou
« Violet à la base de ton cou » in french, is part of the Gold Corset series. Full of gold in the typical OpenFlow style of James. Playing with the white of canvas with subtle purple.
"Purple at the base of your neck" is inspired by the corset in fashion. The white form on the canvas represents the body. It seems covered in molten gold. James expresses here the pressure of the corset around the waist like a burn on the skin. But also the beauty of a wired structure that sublimates the body. The corset accessory inspires James because it has a long history and has always been controversial.
