I have been really wanting to share this with you. It’s a bit of my process having to do with dress patterns. When I was in college, I had several friends who were going to FIT and they were taking the pattern-making classes. I loved their classes more than mine and learned a thing or two. Eventually I went to work in the industry and would sneak back to the designer studios and watch the creators in action. And, I got to be around all the things I loved, the textiles, threads, design, tailoring patterns. But, there is something about these little lovely pattern pieces that I am fascinated with, the ability to create a 3 dimensional form from 2 dimensions that are viewed from every angle.
There was a point later on in my own studio when I decided to incorporate patterns onto my canvas. I started using pins and putting them up on the canvas when I realized they made a beautiful composition - curved edges to straight edges, body parts randomly there, deconstructing the pattern, almost rebelliously instead of putting it together to create that 3 dimensional object, I was putting it together in a new way to create something very unique. Deconstructed.
