Today I feature the very charming and talented artist Sarah Bahr. Sarah's work, on her body i felt fulfilled, graced the card for the connective thread exhibition and was a stand out piece in the show. Sarah not only has talent but is an extremely gracious and lovely person with a fabulous shock of pink hair!
Well skill and creativity are abound in Sarah she makes clothing, costumes, jewelry, video, and performances. Whew!
I explore clothing as sculpture, rather than decoration or functional garments. I currently focus on the roles of females in society and the constraints fashion has placed on the female form, past to present. Through abstraction and by using both traditional and unconventional materials, I blur the line between garment and symbolic form. In this exploration, I touch on the psychology of the human relationship to clothing.

artists talk this Sunday at 5:30 pm.
