Floral & Check Mugshots

Thomas Voorn professionally plays with colours and prints, investigating when colours and prints disturb or enhance one another. In this portrait-series he explores the border between masculinity and femininity, dose and overdose, the vacuum between good and bad taste, where you can taste new flavours and get used to the unknown. Voorn created this ongoing portrait-series as research to develop his own prints. Using the traditional mugshot as base for a contemporary clash of colours and prints.

"...As designer/artist I am always looking for certain tension between object and surroundings, and play with print/colour combinations on the border of dose/overdose.  By doing so I try to define what is fresh at that moment in time.."
