NYC Arts Show

June 15, 2009 in General

I’ve been in NYC now for several days and we had the awesome opportunity to see an art show that took place in the studio ours would be later in the summer. This was put on by the University of Minnesota and the work I was really attracted to was Tonya Balik. She used pattern pieces with some sort of mod podge to make them stiffer and did all sorts of things to them. She even sewed on them! Who would have thought about using pattern pieces lying around your house that you have no idea where they came from to decorate your room! Next to them were canvases that had a metallic spandex where she had sewn them on the machine, and also some hand sewing. I found it really interesting and I really hadn‚Äôt thought of fashion in this sence, it was very eye opening to see her work. None of it was perfect, but together it made such an impressive piece!
