90" X 90"
This piece is constructed from reclaimed Textiles.
I took Clothes and sheets discarded from the people of NY and created this quilt.
The quilt is an image of both Kanye and JAy-z. I used an Image by Troy Gua for the design.
The colors are
Black: Dress Clothes
It then reads like a rags to riches story.
It has been quilted in metallic thread so that when you are close it shines to speak to its subject matter in a tactile and visual way.
There are 1 million quilting stitches on it. [My machine counted, is the only reason I know]
I am standing there to give you scale.
[and to feel all bad ass!]
