Artist Calls Accepted Artists
Los Angeles, California USA
Denim has a very humble origin as the garment of the working class but it has gone through a metamorphosis and is now a symbol of high fashion. Downtown Los Angeles, the abandoned heart of the city, is currently in the midst of its own transformation, the rich now live with the working class; they share the space, interact daily but rarely engage one another. Despite this unfortunate reality both groups are linked through the garments one creates and the other wears. The work I am currently making is created from found denim salvaged from some of the remaining factories. I am interested in exploring the material that links the newest incarnation of the city with the one it is abandoning.
