chaussette b. is the fictitious name of an artist born in 1978 in France. She currently works and lives in Cheung Chau. Her paintography process is the combination of a large score of photographs, captured mainly in her own studio with nearby objects, and parts of her own body. It is fascinating to notice what a massive amount of time and how many different tiny tasks are required to finalize each of her artworks. She meticulously glues them together digitally, then bravely twists them to get close to the visual composition she has in mind. Then, by interlaying her photographs with plain-texture background photographs, her final work would sit between fashion photography and dark surrealism painting.
