Photos of my grad piece
30ft of printed silk organza hung from the ceiling which leads to an antique bench which I have reupholstered using fabric that I wove (silk bamboo fibres)and printed. Seated on the bench is an embroidered silk lotus slipper accompanied by a sewing kit. The imagery is of various lotus slippers on the bench, and the scroll-like hanging is of the x-ray of a bound foot. I like to work with the idea of hiding the ugly behind something beautiful or as I like to title it "Covering up the Ugly Truth with the Beautiful, Embellished and Lavish".
