Art Description

Painting: Oil, Textile on Canvas.

This piece is displayed in the photograph with Prêt-à-Porter No.2 but is sold individually, please see additional photos.
Working in the fashion industry for almost 20 years, elements of those experiences always sort of end up in my art. I needed to further explore this series of Deconstructed paintings incorporating shapes from tailoring patterns....arm holes...bodice....neckline...painted out onto the canvas in a way you would not lay the pattern pieces on fabric to cut. Deconstructed...rather than using them to create a garment. I pull apart to create something different..art. Also a mixture of piecing together origami papers to make collage work, now I am using oils and those pieces run through the dress patterns with paint instead of fabric and paper...holding the pieces together. Reconstructed.

This work is oil and some textile on 36x48" canvas. It comes framed in a brushed leaf silver float frame so the final size is 37 3/4" x 49 3/4" x 2". I used a deep German silver in the painting as well along with graphite grey and painted bits of recycled textile painted red. Markers sometimes used in tailoring etched into the canvas as well as text. The work is ready to hang. Please allow 2 weeks for crating.
