When embarking on my design process I get bombarded by an inordinate amount of unwanted obsessive intrusive thoughts. So much so that I find myself incapable of making progress.
My thoughts are gripping, incessant, and utterly bizarre, with no discrimination as to any particular theme or topic matter. The obsession to achieve perfection translates into the inability to achieve the smallest of tasks.
I am tormented when I project to the final product; do not know how to face these odd concerns so I find myself playing with fabric and cuts. And then, somehow, I start enjoying this – making art from within the by-product of the creative process.
I learn to take things one second, one minute, and one moment at a time. I essentially bank in nano seconds. A lot can happen in an hour, so I focused on transmuting obsession into creation.
The resulting collection includes a large array of prints and construction details such as repeated hand-washed prints, uneven fabric hot treatments, squat pocket design and misplaced grid details.
