MODEL: Patricia Díaz

The goal of this (my first) collaboration with James and Moosehead was to create something with movement that could catch the eye of our public and show what can be done with just some pieces of folded paper. I wanted to create something organic with a fantasy tone, so I came up with this tutu made up of golden leaves pieces. Patricia gave life to it the moment she wore it and started to dance.

they won't be here for long

they still choose to live

their brightest lives"

upon pegs."

If the Chiaroscuro was invented in the modern century instead of 17th and 18th centuries, Wicho franco and me would be the pioneers.  This is an Italian term which literally means 'light-dark'. In paintings the description refers to clear tonal contrasts.

Day of the Dead is a mexican tradition where we welcome our dead loved ones into our homes creating beautiful altars full of their favorite stuff. La Catrina It's a well known character around the world represented here in a more edgy way by using iridescent cardstock simulating bones and the crown combined with the classic orange tones, and creating a conceptual "papel picado" for the background with the cut out technique.
