Running of the Bulls No. 5
Currently on the drawing board is the fifth piece of my Running of The Bulls series. This piece is inspired yet again by Dolce & Gabbana's mesmerizing Spring/Summer 2015 collection. The D&G SS15 collection perfectly captures the beauty and essence of the Italian island, Sicily. Intricate lacework, detailed beading, and feminine silhouettes are paired with vibrantly painted images of Sicily. My favorite aspect of this collection are the renderings of folding fans, which I dramatically incorporated into the composition.
For piece No. 5, a selection of D&G folding fans overlap to create an eye-catching backdrop for the bull. Each fan is unique and reminiscent of Sicily with images such as lemons, cacti, the coast, and gardens. The bull skull, still in the works, will be decorated by silk ribbons and carnations, a favorite of Stefano Gabbana.
Below are snap shots of the work in progress. I look forward to sharing the final piece in the next few days as summer officially comes to an end.
