Patrick John & Lorraine Mary Martin. Monaghan Ireland.
Latex Decoupage Pop Art using Rubber Latex as a medium. Collage Art literally created from pieces of Latex Rubber Sheeting.
Patrick and Lorraine’s art today, is a culmination of masculinity, femininity, power, stimulation, tease, sensuality, suggestion, is thought provoking and by its very subject matter is, so to speak, cloaked in mystery.
Inspired by the world of Fetish Fashion. Fascinated with how latex moves, reflects light and how it accentuates the curves of the body. Patrick and Lorraine’s art can be described as Latex Decoupage Pop Art using actual Rubber Latex as a medium. Blurring the lines between latex fashion and art by substituting paint and canvas with Latex sheet, the very same latex used in latex fashion. they cut the latex sheet into fine detailed pieces and arrange layer upon layer to create realistic likenesses that are inspired by fetish life, in particular symbols of the world of latex fashion be it a full Fantasy costume, a Catsuit, or a detail of a leg clad in latex with stiletto heel, a Hood, a Mask or even Bianca Beauchamp dressed as a nun, in latex of course!
The process begins with selecting a photo, removing the subject from their background, there creating a perceptive illusion, leading the observer to question the landscape. Simplifying colours, applying and emphasizing light and shadow to enhance reflection, curves, stretch and shine. Using the manipulated photo as reference then starts the process of selecting and cutting the desired colours of latex sheeting, before building layers with the latex pieces to compose a work of art depicting imagery of that very same material, Latex the iconic symbol of Fetish Fashion and Life Style.
A tri-dimensional silhouette collage with the appeal and tactile qualities that Latex stimulates, suggests and evokes. A piece of Art that teases the imagination.
