Brooklyn, NY (PRWEB) May 01, 2012
Alicia Piller, one of New York City’s most innovative & original artist/designers has been asked to show her work at the “Dare to Wear’ Art show being held later in the year (Oct 2012), at the St Pancras Crypt, in London.
theART: Alicia describes all her work as biological & organic, absorbing much of her inspiration from nature and the beauty that comes from earths natural possesses. She often describes her jewelry as mini sculptures, physical products of constant and continual practice of techniques developed by Alicia P. herself, using suede and a variety of materials. Her paintings and wall hangings often mimic the shapes and contours of her jewelry, while also taking her entire artistic vision to the next level, inviting the viewer to reflect on the world around us in its current state and beyond.
theSHOW: Alicia was asked to participate in the ‘Dare to Wear’ Show, by London/New York artist Sue Kreitzman (Curator of the show, and founder of WOW ‘Wild Old Women’). The “Dare to Wear’ Show is the perfect showcase for Alicia’s work, with a focus on adornment, the show promises to showcase exaggerated depictions of jewelry and clothing. The thematic connections between the show and Alicia’s work come together as seen through talismans, amulets, superstition, story telling, psychological & spiritual armor, disguise, exuberance, weird joy, and - of course, art.
theKICKSTARTER: This KickStarter Fundraising campaign is the first of its kind for Designs by Alicia P. Alicia participates in art and fashion related shows every year in the US, but she is looking for ways to expand and share her work with the world. Alicia has chosen to use Kickstarter as a platform, not only to raise money for materials and transportation, but to get the word out to a global audience interested in supporting an artist who is thinking and creating outside the box. Alicia creates a language that runs throughout all of her mediums, that has never been seen, and in today’s world of art and fashion this unique element is hard to find.
Kickstarter End Date: May 31st 2012
