Gary Graham #NYFW Summer '11




Gary Graham's collection of defiantly fragile, beautiful fabrics that are made into vulnerable pieces made me think of something I saw at an art opening last night at Julienne Johnson's Ashes for Beauty show.

... to communicate what I cannot communicate with words; what I need to say about it all, what's going on in the world around us, what I cannot fix; what I wish I could make different with my paint, or clay, or wood, metal or the sledge hammer  my husband gave me, I work desperately hard at it all - hands first ... It takes a whole lot of passion and persistence when you are trying so desperately to trade ASHES FOR BEAUTY.

  2. I really like this. The third one is my favorite.

    I love how you described it as "defiantly fragile". I agree!
