Karen LaMonte's Glass Dresses

0

Czech Republic artist Karen Lamonte's life sized glass dresses are draped as gracefully as silk or satin. The Smithsonian Americn Art Museum has acquired the beautiful reclining form above.
Karen LaMonte started using clothing as a metaphor for identity and exploring the human in absentia in her early sculptures of blown glass puppets and marionettes shortly after graduating from the Rhode Island School of Design in 1990.
She continued probing the disparity between our natural skin and our social skin, clothing which we use to obscure and conceal, to protect the individual and project a persona. It is a ‘vestmentary envelope’ which renders us as social beings.
