Wearable Art that Tells a Story
I create wearable art from images and collages that touch on war and nature and unintentional consequences. Rather than using repeated prints, each piece is a complete composition, possessing a distinct narrative.
I hold fast to American philospher, writer, and soldier, J. Glenn Gray's statement, “There is a popular conviction that war and battle are the sphere of ugliness, and, since aesthetic delight is associated with the beautiful, it may be concluded that war is the natural enemy of the aesthetic. I fear that this is in large part an illusion. Along with beauty, war attracted the fascination that manifestations of power and magnitude hold for the human spirit . . . an awareness of power that far surpasses his limited imagination.”
