April 22 – June 2, 2011
Much of my artwork has in some manner been concerned with things past. In this series I continue that investigation by attempting to reanimate a series of bygone dresses with modern spirit. Each dress is significant to the woman modeling that dress; either being something noteworthy passed down from a previous generation or something worn for a momentous occasion. These pictures are portraits in the traditional sense, but they are also collaborative fictions; a collection or cast of characters choreographed to emulate dolls, playfully pretending or enacting some type of enigmatic personal drama or flight of the imagination.
