I love the whimsy in that painting…those citrusy shapes and the turn of the girl’s head.
Since you’re into textiles, you might be interested in learning about kuspuks, the traditional (very warm) dresses that Yupiks wear up in Alaska. When I lived there I saw lots of young Yupik women wearing them with quirky, modern fabrics and trendy trims. I like the ones that the older ladies wear a lot, though: http://www.travelalaska.com/images/skins/ladies/BodyImage.jpg
those are great. thanks for sharing.
i’m going to do some plundering around for more images and we’ll see how it emerges in my work…
