Dahlia Drive – tells stories on diaphanous art sculptures for the female form.
Most fashion pieces are created from pre-patterned 2 dimensional yardages cut and sewn into a finished sculptural form. I start with the sculpture Curtain sheers, once diaphanous boundaries between our homes’ inner and outer worlds, are now transparent boundaries between the body’s sculptural form and the external world. These landscapes inspire me to layer, infuse and embellish a new story onto their map; not to eradicate the previous history, but to stand on its shoulders as part of its evolution. Ultimately, a woman becomes the foundational layer to the living canvas, inspiring it to be interpreted in a new way. A Body of Art.
