Description The Upholstery ArtDress is made from the fabric that covered an old recliner...including a few of the buttons on the cushion! The matching dressform for this piece (pictured in photo 2 of this set) is made from the actual wood and springs from the recliner. You'll find more information about this and other artworks by Jamie at http://www.twistedtextiles.comThe ArtDress series of photographs features the textile artworks of Jamie Kuli McIntosh. The photographs are a husband/wife collaborative effort, with all images taken by Jason McIntosh. The series also serves to document the 'performance' of these textile works, transforming the garment from a work of sculpture to a functional article of fashion.
J McIntosh, Kentucky Member Since October 2007 Artist Statement Jamie Kuli McIntosh is primarily a textile artist, but in reality she's a "Jill-of-all-trades!"
She makes one-of-a-kind artworks, and has collaborated with her husband, Jason McIntosh, to bring you this gallery of high-fashion photographs. In this way, the artworks can be showcased in all their functional, full-motion, wearable goodness---the way that clothing is intended to be seen!
