Kalliope Amorphous is a model and visual artist whose work explores conceptual self-portraiture as a catalyst for visualizing ideas of identity, gender, archetype and myth. Kalliope uses her own image as a prop to create the protagonists of her stories.
In addition to her photographic work, Kalliope is a writer of poetry and prose, designs various mixed media works and creates handmade artisan perfumes for Black Baccara perfumery.
Kalliope is currently curating all things photographic, ethereal, haunting and bizarrely fashionable.
