Coltrain's Horse, 2014
Internationally acclaimed artist Tyrone Mitchell commissioned me to produce the textile component to his mixed- media sculpture "Coltrane's Horse" using his Kuba cloth from a trip to West Africa.
I draped the sections of the sculpture to be covered with muslin to develop pattern templates. The fabric was then cut, fitted and sewn into sleeves to be permanently attached to the body of the piece.
This work was featured in the 2014 show ICONOMANIA, at the former Merton Simpson Gallery, New York City, where Tyrone Mitchell was represented.
