Rags to Riches

In response to Columbia City Gallery’s call to the 6th Annual Chop Challenge, I decided to salute the world’s highest paid living woman artist, Jenny Saville, by celebrating one of her nudes. My nude was fashioned from Green Eileen rags, purloined from the scrap bin in the shop next door to Columbia City Gallery, Seattle. I snipped and glued bits of tees, sweaters, skirts and dresses into my voluptuous figure and added a bit of tempera in celebration of women, and fashion. I’ve given my Jenny a fetching pair or red mules, matching earrings, and a light cotton shawl.
