interesting to see the aesthetic relationships these new garment pieces have to
your digital work. The fluid transitions between saturated, jewel toned colors
are appreciated in both color palates. (I don´t see the medium indicated, but
they appear to be dyed silk.) I respond to the long cut of this specific piece,
as the trailing lines of the cape appear
to echo the formal divisions between warm and cool hues. The asymmetry of the
design creates further visual interest, but isn´t jarring or dissonant. The
adjacent piece (a blouse) perhaps offers more of an open field for the
painterly design. Without the structure of the garment defining symmetrical
boundaries, the washes of green and violet pigment offer surprising contrast
when they come up against the lighter half.
