2 in(89 cm x 89 cm x 5 cm)
In this portrait of my partner Bill, I hoped to combine a more formal, classical style of portrait with an honest and personal depiction of the man I love. The framing with gold trim, deep purple background, and head-and-shoulders composition suggest a regal portrait, but the bare chest, off-centeredness, and facial expression convey something far more intimate.
Cotton, silk, nylon tulle, velvet, gold trim, beads.
Layered and hand-stitched sheer fabrics over solids, with embroidery and beading.
