"On my first tour of Gallery 811, I was intrigued with its mixtures of art styles/mediums. I turned a corner and was stopped in my tracks. I was viewing a wall full of tantalizing bold colors and textures - of exquisitely designed Evening Gowns! Exclaiming “OMG! I have to paint these!!!” the gallery owner, Caren Wingate, asked me “The couturiers’ workroom is upstairs - would you like to meet him?” Hence, this bolt of inspiration led to me painting 8 of Luis Machicao’s dress designs for his Fashion Show – “I Dream of Dior” –his Paris Fashion Week 2023 Spring/Summer Collection."
~Comments from the artist, Lindsay Daniel~
Lindsay Daniel's striking use of color and shape in this collection of 8 figurative pieces showcases the personality and attitude of each couture gown; and tells the collaborative story of two creatives. This exquisite set of soft pastel panting's will be available at Galleries 811. To schedule a viewing please contact us or drop by during normal business hours.
