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!]
