Autumn / Winter 2017: The Reality Within
There is a saying that less is more. It is when we are at our simplest that people learn to appreciate our unknowns. Ergo by being unknown, we provoke a sense of mysteriousness, unknowingly becoming a vacuum for the unusual. The apple as portrayed in Magritte’s painting stirs up an uncertainty that invites its viewers to contemplate improbable interpretations, however without the notion of offering a definitive meaning or an answer of certainty.
Above all else creating a sense of hunger for curiosity. The apple acts as masks to conceal. Yet, in juxtaposition – something as plain as an apple is able to arouse a sense of mystery. The clothes aspire to live within the unknown. Unafraid of being judged – they become cozy and allow seams to either pull together, cold and fade into nothing or happily merge into one.
