Art Couture

2017 Solo exhibition: Composing Art

I had the privilege of collaborating with the talented Cape Town artist and fashion designer, Petro Steyn of Skeet Couture, to create three artistic pieces of clothing, to be exhibited alongside my artworks for my 2017 art exhibition.

I had one of my lino artworks digitally printed on natural linen fabric. Petro skillfully designed and made wearable clothing, using this printed fabric. She disassembled the image and made it into an entirely new abstract artwork – with the original lino print still recognizable.  

Petro is a fashion designer that specializes in tailor-made designs. She is known for her clothing label: Skeet. She also works as a costume designer for film, TV and theatre. Petro designs and makes fresh, original pieces – artworks in their own right.

This artwork was used to create the design on the linen from which the clothing was made.
