Some old paintings, some stitches sewn, a dress is made
wearing them, the painter became the Pain Ting- the Lady who wears the painting
the Painter, the Lady and the painting are one
All paintings are sewn with the idea that they could be re-transformed into their original forms- purely as paintings
There is not the slightest idea of devaluing my paintings by turning them into wearable items; instead, by wearing them and filming the sequence myself, I came to see my paintings in a new form- closer to a moving sculpted piece. Even the brush strokes became more evident as essential constructive elements.
These pieces chosen are random works picked, but are also works that bring me back to my joyful days as a student in Canada and Scotland.
