< acryl on canvas and fabric / 120 x 320 cm >
Tom's first piece of the Magic Mannequin Museum series. His approach to the series is to take the inital idea of a fashion design concept and to push it even further, visualizing the entire universe of what the designer had in mind / creating an „exaggeration“.
This particular piece painted on four canvases generating one big art work, represents the four seasons winter, summer, spring and autumn; dedicated to "Marni" and "Prada".
The brand's fabrics are collaged into the art work- then partly painted over.
The first two parts of the 4 Seasons (winter and autumn) split the model and her reflection into winter and spring, using a photoshooting Tom took as template and bumping it up to the next level.
MMM - the Magic Mannequin Museum goes beyond what we see in fashion, diving into initial ideas of selected designers interpreted by Tom Lohner.
