I am having an exhibition on July 16th at the POVevolving Gallery in LA entitled SUMMERWINTER.
I began thinking about the SUMMERWINTER concept about a year ago. It was a natural seasonal progression after my Autumn inspired show at colette in Paris. I wanted to convey the way that seasons are different in the Northern and Southern hemispheres, and how opposites attract… That feeling that one could not exist without the other, and that things all become one in the end.
For this show, I took a minimalist approach in my work, which was inspired by my husband. I have always been about color, but in this show I kept the pallet strictly to black, white and grey. I also experimented with other textiles and media for this show… Along with my sewn creatures, I created a limited edition Ombré dyed scarf to symbolize black and white becoming one (grey). My husband and I also created a short film that will be shown at the exhibition.
The entire show centers around a single love story between the characters Summer and Winter, who fall in love. Even though they live on opposite sides of the world, they consummate their love, and perform a seasonal dance of love for eternity.
Here is a sneak peak into my upcoming show… If you are in town, please swing by and have a drink with us.
