Dandy Lines by Caitlin Thompson

November 4th, 2017 to January 7, 2018

Dandy Lines are cosmic country embroideries that reference Western fashion through the cyclical, transformative theories of craftwork and animation. The richly ornamented cloaks simultaneously project and imbed images of nature and the unnatural, their void interiors await a body for transformation. The embroidered drawings are my own adaptations of traditional country embroidery designs: flowers and butterflies, plants and animals, symbols and subjects. My nature designs cross-pollinate with eachother “unnaturally” (plants-become-people and symbols-become-alive). Each embroidery consists of many frames from an animation, a continuous loop of transforming and giving life. By combining the Romantic era dandy of nature and individualism with the New Romantic notion of the unnatural, I present Western fashion as a mythic space of continual transformation.
