This wearable breastplate by blog author Christine Palamidessi is mostly inspired by the exhibit “Future Beauty: 30 Years of Japanese Fashion” that was at the Peabody Essex Museum ( Salem, MA) last winter….especially the strapped clothing by Japanese designers Tao Kurihara and Rei Kawakubo. Of course in addition to Japanese art, there is more homage being paid —-1 cotton strapping is Iyengar Yoga straps straight from Pune, India ..2. The sculpture itself hearkens back to the Greeks and Romans ideals.
I want to re-consecrate and re-mythologize as much as possible ( before it is lost in the maze of fast living and fake news, etc.). I do just that with art as I hold loving kindness in my heart: I'm mostly interested in Classical form and make sculpture, do printmaking and write about amazing people & places hoping to entertain and to find like-minded spirit.
