Kmossed: Spider Bite Equals Dizzy Head is Kavanavoch’s first collection of wearable artworks, inspired by the duality and deceptiveness of love.

 

In these images lies a relationship. A sensory, intangible tempest in an indeterminate realm where emotions dictate an unending search for meaning, mystery and miracle. A BYO of the self, spilling over into the other; the rise, fall and ache that charts its fateful course.

 

‘Rose-tinted alien eyes peek out from behind twirling candy cane fleur-de-lys;gossamer spider web plays on the boundaries like a hot-climate snowflake.

Lace on a more flesh-coloured hue, it’s the playing card pattern that plays you,The flu­oro echoes, the lie dyes, and in the middle is the unblinking Third Eye.'

And in each corner, there’s the decisive stomp of someone putting their foot down.’

 

These works draw us into the all-consuming nature of love, the shifting relationship between the object and the subject of desire. Like Rorschach butterflies, these evocative images split the nature of obsession into shards of kaleidoscopic beauty.

 

All is fair in love and war.
