As we researched the culture of the Omo People and how they viewed their bodies as art, we looked at the many patterns that were able to create. Immediately, it reminded us of Mark Bradford. In fact, our organization is a big fan of Mr. Bradford but as you look at his work and some of the photographs we are sharing below, you can see why we feel he offers an abstract take as well to these women. He is very in tune with using found objects just like these women who also use the raw materials around them.
