"Squared" Abstract, 36' x 36"
Inspired by Project Runway All-Stars, Season 3, Episode 4, Jeffrey Sebelia design
This Project Runway dress was designed on another "unconventional challenge". Designers were packed on to a school bus and driven to an elementary school. There they raided the classroom for anything they could get their hands on— rulers, mats, folders, jump ropes—you name it, they used it. There is something about dealing with these obscure and unusual "fabrics" that makes designers think outside the box and get truly crazy creative. However in this case I don't think it worked. (Designer Jeffrey Sebelia got lucky as the judges didn't send any one home on this show!)
I used the squares on the dress as the inspiration for my painting. That was pretty much the only thing that inspired me. Ha! The end result is a fun and kind of crazy painting.
