The Empress’ New Clothes
Inspired of Andersen’s fairy tale “The Emperor’s New Clothes” that speaks of truth, pride or self-deception, vanity, conformity or courage of belief. My artwork is a metaphor of bearing a new skin, a new life, a new attitude, was about being true and honest with our thoughts, our feelings, our self. An old mannequin and a torn vintage dress mount a new coat made in silkscreen printed paper.
