This exotic collage series explores a visual representation of the Talking Heads song (Nothing But) Flowers.
Like the song, the series of collages tell an optimistic rather than a pessimistic story of a doomed future. The garments present a canvas of the world, and the ornamentation, a future that is full of flowers and vibrancy.
Nothing But Flowers reflects my passion for recycling textiles. Like flowers, which regenerate and renew each year, all embellishments are recycled, regenerated, and renewed, using materials gathered from numerous locations. This project brings together both a song of hope, as well as the ability to recycle.
