The artist with The Throne

90" X 90"

The Throne

 

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

White: Sheets

Blue: Jeans

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!]
