Pioneers of the Downtown Scene, New York 1970s, Barbican Art Gallery present Rummage Sale and Floor of the Forest next Saturday 5th - Sunday 6th March as part of the Barbican Weekender.
I have created a limited edition series of 6 pieces entitled 'My emotions are my wardrobe' especially for the Rummage Sale. Each piece began its journey in the project as a charity shop find or a friendly donation. I hand picked a collection of unisex jackets, shirts and t-shirts with the idea that they could be worn and styled by pretty much anyone and would look good effortlessly. The pieces make up an illustrated story through the emotive hand painted designs that they bear. Each item is for sale.
|His blood, sweat and tears|
|She wept and from her eyes poured an illustrated story|
|An emotional graphic|
|His tears of frustration|
|The leaking eye of awareness|
