Stolen Moment

Assemblage Art Dress Made From Paper and Fabric with hard backed book cover background.

Small 22cm long, 24cm wide, 16cm depth, paper fabric assemblage dress.

A small three dimensional assemblage comprising a backdrop fashioned from the remnants of the book from which the dress is made. The background is painted in midnight blue tones over a scattered gold leaf. The stars are recycled from earrings and painted partly white but the metal is exposed to reveal a twinkle. The moon hangs as the dress shimmers in its pale light, reinforcing the cool washed out pale lilac colours of the dress. The bodice is adorned with small pearly beads and shot through with silver threads and the straps are sparkling diamante. The skirt is made from a silk linen blend with teardrop pearly beads suspended from the hem underneath, the pleated skirt is stitched together from pages from the book used to form the backdrop. A little hook on the backdrop is used to suspend the papier mache moon.
