‘The Reef.’ Kavir Mootoo, 2019. Hand-painted Women’s-cut *medium*. Bamboo and organic cotton, sweatshop-free (*sold*)

US $48.00

Created as part of my ‘There is Something in the Water’ collection in which I highlight some of the things I enjoy about the planet’s water and some of the things that cause me deep concern. This piece is inspired by reefs, pearls and the deep sea.

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 or in a gallery.

I like that, in this way, it is more accessible to more people. And who doesn’t want to wear a painting??? It’s being immersed in art in a real way – being intimate with another’s heart, soul, hands, thoughts – I find this is a very profound wonderful way to ‘connect.’

This piece is offered as part of the #artistsupportpledge

The ARTIST SUPPORT PLEDGE is a generous culture and dynamic economy in support of artists and makers.

The concept is a simple one. Artists and makers post images of their work to sell for NO MORE than TT$1400 (US$200, £200, €200, ¥20000) each (not including shipping.) Anyone can then buy the work. Every time the artist or maker reaches TT$7000 (US$1000) of sales they pledge to buy another artist’s work for TT$1400 (US$200). This is open to artists all over the world and is to encourage a more democratic, equal and open economy for all artists and makers.
