"Sylvie Stripes" is an original 22" x 30" mixed media painting on handmade paper. This piece was created using a range of materials, including gouache, watercolor, wax pastel, and graphite. It is framed in a 27” x 35” frame by Bennetts’ Frame & Art Gallery, a local, family-owned business in Greenville, SC. This piece can be hung as a diptych with “The Gini”.
This body of work is inspired by summer and the getaways it brings. It’s a time to dream of sipping fine wines along the coast of southern Italy or catching warm breezes while sailing through the south of France, while you are sitting pretty in your swimwear inspired by vintage textiles and patterns. The checkered high-waist bikini nods to 1960's textile designer Alexander Girard, while the florals remind me of lavenders and herbs inhaled in the Parisian countryside. The large-scale pieces serve as an opportunity to enlarge, play, and push the patterns I've developed on various pieces of swimwear.
