DESCRIPTION

Capturing a moment in the life of its wearer, Glass’ garment and prints are created through the deceptively basic methods of light exposure and chemical preparation on fabrics.   Vintage gowns from her own collection were used to create life-size imprints on the chemically treated canvas.   These “x-ray” photographs (cyanotypes) manifest a process that the artist sees as a deeply metaphorical statement on the roles of politics, power, and fashion.
