Constellation Dress

This piece is constructed of thousands of cable ties with the addition of aerosol paints and was first shown at the Splatter to Sparkle Art Wear event sponsored by the University of Iowa Art Museum, 2014. For this event, twelve artists were selected to create garments inspired by Jackson Pollock’s Mural.

Additionally the piece has been shown multiple times, including:

  • As part of my avant garde artwear line, The Night Sky, for Omaha Fashion Week, March, 2015.
  • In a gallery setting as part of the invitational exhibition, Well Begun, Not Yet Won at the Muscatine Art Center, Muscatine, Iowa in 2020 and was a celebration of the Nineteenth Amendment which granted women the right to vote.
  • In a gallery setting in Call and Response, a two-person exhibition at the Lyndon House Art Center, Athens, Georgia, 2019

Modeled in the studio by Kami Buchanan and on the runway by Jessica White.
