Diamond Dolls Artist’s Book 2021


“Diamond Dolls is a stunning anthology of drawings, built up from discarded Savile Row brown tailoring patterns. Hormazd elevates these hollow outlined figures into ceremonious beauty and magic.” - Russell Tovey

Product Story

Diamond Dolls is a sumptuous artist’s book that originates from a sequence of Hormazd Narielwalla’s highly distinctive paper collages. Thirty six images carry a running motif of Bowie’s ‘Ziggy Stardust’ persona, each of which is defined by elaborate, decorative costuming. Cipher-like, the figures reference the Japanese gender-fluid traditions of kabuki and onnagata, which influenced Bowie in his approach to challenging conventions about sexuality.
