Van Gogh Jacket

Spent an afternoon creating a wearable art piece for a costume party on the theme of Dead Celebrities.  It was strange to see this jacket, inspired by the style of Vincent Van Gogh, contrasting it’s surroundings.  Van Gogh’s art was revolutionary in his day as his art did not simply simulate reality but transformed it into shattered fragments of colours and powerful movements of lines.  Even this clumsy homage unexpectedly transports my unimpressive backyard into something more.
