Winter wearable artwork by mirena

Winter is a wearable artwork based on a frame form Winter Diagrams: December,  animated pen and ink drawings. This whole struggle with paintings that look like dresses comes from a single well - I have  always pushed the third dimension in my drawings and this comes directly from being a 3d artist for so long.  My brain has been completely rewired to think three-dimensionally.  I can't imagine a satisfactory flat plane and there is this anxiety to twist it in another direction.

The thirst for dimension pushed me to animate the drawings, and, in turn, to take the animated drawings in yet another dimension with the wearable work. The wearability comes from sensory seeking, craving tactile things, feeling the work with the whole body, literally occupying the work.

What happened to the red ceiling of XQUISITE CORPSE ? I decided to wear it by mirena

I wanted to swim in it all along.. that's why I scouted the Garment District in Manhattan for 50 yards of the most beautiful red ( as soon as I find the card of the store on 38th st - I will publish it. The most amazing place, swimming in beautiful fabrics and amazing people. I owe our red to them )
