Classical drape.

I am currently doing a little visit to my folks in Asheville so thought it would be appropriate to find a few local folks to feature. Lucky for me my parents have a new local magazine and what do you know it feature some pretty cool local artists. Megan Van Deusen's work stood out to me for obvious reasons- lots of draping, lots of white, figurative.

She draws, directly onto fabric, representations of nudes lit and posed in classically inspired ways and then drapes, pins and attaches draping that brings the entire piece into the 3 dimension.

I like how her work is referencing such classical periods of art and style but simultaneously doing a totally contemporary interpretation of it.

See more of her work here.
