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 re-consecrate and re-mythologize as much about now and about us humans as possible (before it is lost in the maze of fake news, etc.). I do that with art. With other artists of tangible things...I hold up hope. For me and my work, paper becomes the layer between the visible and invisible worlds-- on sculpture, drawing and printmaking. In this Wordpress blog I would like to share, entertain and to find amazing people with like-minded spirits.
