A few months ago, I had the unique opportunity to work with and collaborate on a lookbook. At first thought, I assumed it would be something rather simple, but upon visiting the establishment, (http://www.stephensilverfinejewelry.com/), that thought radically changed. I never would have imagined that my artwork would be, or could be paired with jewelry of this caliber. But let's take a step back, I never would have thought of my artwork being paired up with ANY jewelry.
The two seemed to be polar opposites,... either this was INSANITY or this was GENIUS. Turns out, it was, in fact, PURE GENIUS. I was able to craft a few background canvases, and a number of smaller pieces on metal display boxes,... I thought it was fascinating that my work was being "wrapped around" objects, that I was going to step into more of an installation type of mentality as opposed to just creating work on a flat surface... the possibilities were ENDLESS.
Here is to the magic of thinking out the box, exploring new ideas, and breaking a few norms along the way!
So, I had to keep the project under wraps until the lookbook was officially released. I am truly humbled and excited by how it came out!
Here are a few pages from the lookbook.
These are Ulysse Nardin watches, titanium steel, paired with my art.
