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 then & now and about us human beings as possible. (Wondering: effect of fake news, digitalization, poor education system etc?) I do it with art in the company of other artists who are making narratives, history, words and images tangible ...we hold and give hope in what we make. My preferred medium is paper; it 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 connect with like-minded spirits.
