ART NOW S20 Professional Practices

Class of 2021
Art+Design Minor

My current pieces of art include themes of nature incorporated into clothing. The flower on the face on the tank top is a metaphor for beauty, health, and growth and love. The Japanese Cherry Blossom painting is incorporated on the jacket to celebrate the beautiful flowers in nature. The overall inclusion of nature and flowers on my pieces celebrates the beauty of nature. Both of my pieces were handmade with varying mediums, colorful paint and white embroidery, and both are contrasted with the black clothing item. The added themes of nature, beauty, and growth enable the plain clothing items to stand out and be a piece of art.
