Collection II, Brooklyn, NY, 2016
Shade creates a graphic slice on our environment. A representation of refuge from the unforgiving sun.
Shade cuts our world, it creates depth, yet appears flat. It lives with us, growing longer throughout the day.
This collection explores the stillness of summer heat, the vitality of sweat, and the divide of shadow.
Shade has been used as a device to manipulate depth and the surface of a plane.
Graphically this collection also examines the cultural elevation and evolution of athletic brands into luxury goods.
The palm motif has been employed as a figurative representation of summer and as a metaphor for opulence.
