|Kerry James Marshall, De Style, 1993|
It took two 4 hour visits to LACMA just to get through ninety percent of the exhibitions. This, not including the Tim Burton Exhibit (going thru October), nor stopping by the Pavillion for Japanese Art, or the Children's Gallery. So little time, so much art to stop and take in! What's a girl to do... However, among the hundreds of pieces I viewed, there were a few that resonated with me. One of which is Kerry James Marshall's painting De Style (pictured above) which can be found in the Broad Contemporary Art building.
As a person always looking to my surroundings for inspiration, I tend to do a couple of things when something catches my eye: (1) Observe the item for what it is, (2) Look closer at the detail texture or color that intrigued me, and (3) Figure out a way to incorporate my new found interest into something completely different. Most times I'm looking for fashion inspiration, so here are my 3 favorite paintings translated into clothing...
