” The thing that interests me is that today painters do not have to go to a subject matter outside of themselves. They work from a different source. They work from within.”
This was said by Jackson Pollock in an interview, which you could read the rest here.
In the work that my mom and I do, we’re inspired by many different sources. Although my mom works with a source from within, making clothes requires incredible techniques. In my personal art, I also work from within. I love details, but mostly I love to let loose, similarly to Jackson Pollock. These two very different styles that my mom and I have, merged together to create a stunning dress, inspired by the master – Jackson Pollock! Here are some photos of the process and the finished piece!
The paint on this dress is permanent and does not wash off. You can see the Etsy listing for this dress here.
Aside from Jackson Pollock, here’s a look into what we did this past summer:
We drove out to Long Island and took a ferry to Shelter Island! If anyone has the means of going there, we highly suggest it! We’ve never known about this place before this summer. It is famous for having a five star hotel called the Sunset Hotel, which is on this beautiful strip of beach, which is covered with magical, little shells! We went to this beach to collect shells and now we’re going to make dresses and other clothes from these shells! The name of these shells are mermaid toenails! Here are some photos from our great time collecting these shells!
Taking the ferry to Shelter Island! This was someone else’s car. Aren’t those dogs adorable!
Nicholas! Most of the time he was splashing around in the beautiful, calm water!
Peace & Love,
