A little "call back" in my new piece: “Sin Speak” Pen, watercolor, ink, gel pen, and colored pencil on paper, 14 x 12 in., 2019. In case it looks familiar to some, it is the same whooping crane from "The Sacrifice of the Blood Red Saint" (the last image in this post). My solo, "Chimera" opens this Saturday at 7pm at @coreyhelfordgallery. See some of you there! .
For purchase inquiries, show previews, and questions about "Sin Speak" and my 17 other new works, please contact Corey Helford Gallery at [email protected]

It is better to fail in originality than to succeed in imitation.
Elsa Schiaparelli - Part 5 - The Circus collection 1938 - luxurious embroidery adorned her creations: this was the case of the beautiful embroidery of the Circus collection of 1938 which represented all the elements related to this theatrical universe that is the circus: horses, acrobats, circus decorations, sequins
Schiaparelli commissioned a lot of jewels, brooches from jeweler Jean Schlumberger, who is best known for his work at Tiffany & C
When Elsa Schiaparelli presented the collection, it was said to be the most riotous and swaggering fashion show that Paris had ever seen; making her the biggest rival of Coco Chanel during that period. The pink jacket on the last picture is consisting in four handmade, cast metal acrobat buttons. This bright pink woven silk jacket was one of the collections’ masterpieces and it still is a constant reference to innovation, craftsmanship and creativity.
Victoria and Albert Museum describes the jacket as;“The heavy buttons are attached to the cloth with with industrial slide hooks behind providing the actual fastenings. Such novel buttons and fastenings were a trademark of Schiaparelli’s work.” Most of her designs are now museum pieces, proving that she was actually an artist, just working to be with garments.to be continued
