Textile is used as a mean for comfort and protection against the elements. But that's not all, the coverup of the body is mandatory its shamefull as others see you have a body. You without clothes is an offence, even certain body parts can't be shown. In some parts of the world clothes are used to emphase certain body parts. But it is always a walk at the sharp edges of social- and legal bounderies.
Educated in visual arts this artist is using his own body and that of his associates as source material for his art. He is not in any way in doubt about his gender as a man but he is feeling suppressed as a human being because of what society considers as 'manly'. That's one of the theme's he is expressing in his art.
