Bag & Boots
Bag & Boots
46 hours of new beginnings.
The drawing that started my passion, and ideas for my collection. The memories of the objects in question: the bag, and the boots. The history behind objects that make me wonder. The lack of color in the midst of all of that texture. The purpose of the object. The didactic nature of its form, and utility placed right in front of you without obstruction, or abstractive behavior. The sterility. The history.
The bag was given to me as a birthday present on my 18th birthday by my grandmother. The boots, my 20th birthday by her daughter. The two make up my past, my present, and future history. The only reason I am alive today, and the only reason you have these two objects to look at in wonder. These objects, in return, also objectify me to tell my story.
