Hand-painted One-off Unisex *Medium*. Bamboo and organic cotton, sweatshop-free.

US$48.00

This was created by printing a young palm leaf from the garden on to the tank top, after which I painted on it.

The seeds of a palm that I used to play around as a child took root in a bed around it, and new plants have been growing. I find it exciting to see this cycle of life happening before my eyes – about 40 years after I knew this plant when it was young, it is continuing its life.

It feels wonderful to connect with it again in this way – to give it another life in another way, through my art – so that it could live beyond this garden.

Description

To create this, I placed the tank top on a table and painted on it. When the front was finished and left to dry, I turned it over and painted the back.

I like treating clothes as if they are a piece of paper or a canvas. I put it on a table and then paint on it. I see it as ‘another painting’ and think the idea of wearing a painting very exciting. It will be like a living piece of art in my eyes – or a form of public art. This makes more sense to me than a piece of art being in a home. I like that, in this way, it is more accessible to more people.
