“There are things known and things unknown. And in between are the doors of perception.” The phrase is by English writer Aldous Huxley and embodies the labyrinths of the work of New York artist Michael Krasowitz. In addition to the sentence of a classic writer, the word labyrinth is another possibility to simply describe a complex and multidimensional work. The creations of visual artist Michael Krasowitz range from performance, sculpture and painting to fashion and photography.
Except in the field of photography, the artist paints references of imagination and dream world, creatures that can only be conceived in dreams and subconscious levels.
The works of Michael Krasowitz can be found in art galleries worldwide, and the success of his monochrome and multicolor canvases led the artist to develop a collection inspired by the fantastic universe already portrayed in his digital drawings, sculptures and oil paintings.
Krasowitz’s relationship with fashion began with the language of performance – artistic expression in which the works are developed live in front of an audience, using the body as an artistic tool. Krasowitz then developed a series of paintings made live in clothes, in the bodies of the models. The canvas gave way to clothing and thus Krasowitz adopted the concept of “Wearable Art”.
Wearing a creation of the designer is like going out with a frame attached to the body. The designer uses fashion as a mean of expression to elevate art, painting and subconscious expressions. To put on the creations of Krasowitz is like a performance, a conscious statement of the body for the love of art.
For those tuned in spring / summer 2017, the designer collection is an explosion of what is expected and a catalyst of the most irresistible trends. Vibrant colors come in extremely stylish cut vests and “lady like” dresses promise to drop jaws wherever you go. This week Living Aurora will show a vest and other outfits by Krasowitz! Stay tuned.
P.S.: Visit the Michael Krasowitz website to learn more about custom pieces and paintings on couture bags. You know that expensive bag that is not quite vintage but, let us say, a bit out of context? Haha … “out of context” it is a great way to say “I do not want you!” Krasowitz works miracles with high-end bags. AKA: Gucci, Hermès, Louis Vuitton, and so on …
