From the tiniest art galleries to the Taj Mahal, art has a fascinating ability to inspire other artists beyond materials and mediums. A sculptor can draw as much inspiration from this Richard Painter's exhibit as can a simple style aficionada as your writer. The lines between realism and the abstract are blurred in this minimalist richness. A golden silhouette and an intricate texture give away the fragility of something as simple and taken from granted, as deceivingly insignificant as a spring of dry grass. The large displays place the viewers in a new perspective, where the human confronts the smallest pieces of nature on which she steps and faces it in her own size.
Can you see this on the runway? Perhaps in a delicate crumpled silk organza, minimalistic, and body-conscious.
