Vexilla Florum exhibition opens September 14

I am pleased to announce that my work featuring Glowforge-created elements will open at Gallery 825 in Los Angeles on September 14 and continue through October 18.

“A vexillum is a flag and as something that can be seen from far away, it was an early form of communication - a way to direct troops or identify a faction. Vexilla are a relic of war. Hochman Brown has created vexilla standards using floral motifs that pay homage to the flower children of the sixties, who promoted their power through gentle acts. The pieces are a remembrance of the women who constructed the flags of war while maintaining peace at home.”

The opening reception is September 14, 6-9 PM.
825 La Cienega Blvd,. Los Angeles
All are welcome!

The fabric is custom printed satin charmeuse lined with silk dupioni. The designs are created by distorting and reflecting photographs digitally. Any sense of depth and layering is thanks to the shadows in my source photograph and some digital trickery on my part.

At the moment, the QR takes you to a webpage that shows the design used on the banner.

Eventually, the code will link to an animation relating to the subject flower.
There are six banners in total for this show.
The design I presented here is DATURA (Jimson Weed).
