"Dating Chaos - What to Wear is meant to make visible a conversation that takes place between two artistic mediums when they are both used to express a single idea. Painting and costuming - endeavors I have long enjoyed - are paired up for this exhibition and allowed to influence and transform one another. The structure is simple: first a gesture painting is created that sets the mood and design parameters for the costume. Then, the costume is worn by a model which in turn, inspires a painting. This process yields a set of three pieces that express a single idea."
"The subject of the conversation though, and the underlying idea of all the sets is chaos. Each group of works attempts to demonstrate the various effects chaos has upon us. Each one of us is dating chaos; things explode and we're all standing in the way of the blast; appropriate dress will ensue!"
The Northwest Eye is a five-state regional fine art photography competition and exhibition highlighting the current trends in the art of photography. This exhibition showcases the creativity and beauty caught by some of the finest photographers in the Northwest.
