Boogie Woogie

Mondrain

Dutch painter Piet Mondrian is a guiding light that re-imagining the world by reducing the essentials of form and color can form a new art movement.  Heavily influenced by Cubism and founding contributor of the De Stijl art movement, Mondrian’s art evolved into a non-representational form called neoplasticism: consisting of a white background, upon which was painted a grid of vertical and horizontal black lines and three primary colors.  Mondrian’s best example of neoplasticism is his Boogie Woogie series and Composition series in the late 1930-40’s (slideshow below), echoing city street, utilizing bright colors that leap from the canvas appearing to shimmer and draw the viewer in.  His work is astonishing in its simple yet elegance form and a great inspiration to the world of fashion including a series of Hermes bags, Yves Saint Laurent collection of shift dresses, and an iconic neoplastic Nike release.  Second Life designer Ms. Jaraloy Swords of Aidoru paid tribute to Mondrian by creating the Homage to PM Outfit, available at the FashionArt Fair.  The outfit includes a fitted mesh dress, pumps, chunky bangles and earrings.  I wore *YS&YS* Capri Sabot Slink Heels, matching Viareggion Handbag, available at The Dressing Room, and Nailed It FashionArt Slink Nail Set, available at the FashionArt Fair.  Judy hair by D!va, Ria skin by Belleza, and It’s a Mod, Mod World Pose #3 by NanTra, also available at The FashionArt Fair.  Taxi please…

Keith Haring inspired fashion @ TDR

keith-haring-1978-1982-exhibition-brooklyn-museum-13-620x413When designer, Barbra Kungler of Kunglers created the TDRF dress #23, did she see a tribute to muralist Keith Haring, or was she channelling a tribal vibe?  Who knows?  Maybe it’s my art background, but the black and white geometric print rushes through the TDRF #23 dress like the quick staccato brush strokes of Haring murals.  Keith Haring was the darling of the New York City art world of the 1980’s, often using graffiti and street art to publicly express political and social commentary on birth, death, AIDS and war.  Haring is recognized for the visual language of the 20th century and created public art works conveying social messages.  I would compare Haring to the current trendy and popular underground artist, Banksy.

I paired the Kunglers TDRF #23 Dress (black & white) with A&Ana F.J. Only Triangle Gold  Jewelry (also available at The Dressing Room until Thursday, October 10, 2013).  I wanted to highlight the segmented “V” throughout the dress and jewelry, creating movement and action within each triangle, resembling a comic book print.
