<3 ART OFF THE FRAME
When I told the team that I was about to demolish a painting in order to turn it into a dress the reviews were mixed; jaws dropping in awe, others were sad because they thought the process would be painful for me. Overall, the first question out of everyone's mouth was, "Which painting?" They wanted to make sure that their favorite would survive the sacrifice.
During the process I found the opposite was true, and the concept that every transformation comes at a cost was highly reinforced. Without experimentation, risk, dedication and perserverance there is nothing to discover. I also felt this dress had been waiting for me to create it and that this was a part of my destiny to procure and will it to existence.
This dress was a labor of love and a testiment to the human spirit as it exemplifies unity between the most uncommon entities.
Be You for You,
