Art meets Fashion
Caren Sielaff’s motif is fashion. Her fashion illustrations are free, artistically autonomous works, sometimes playfully poetic, sometimes expressively staged. The visual appeal lies in the broad range of techniques. Along with drawing and painting, she uses photography, which she transforms into something painterly using digital media.
Caren Sielaff also processes clothing, fashion accessories, and fabrics to produce pictures, sculptures, videos, and performances. Here, fashion becomes a raw material for works of art. The production of clothing belongs to this category, which blurs the boundary to fashion design, since the products are definitely wearable in the conventional sense.
The Ebook is a form of artist’s catalog and brings together Caren Sielaff’s various media in the visionary pair, art and fashion. In a game of mutual attraction and repulsion, Caren Sielaff’s series find a timeless interface between art and fashion.
