Collage Abstractions Inspired by Dress Making Patterns from Vintage Fashion Magazines
Hormazd Narielwalla is an artist who creates beautiful collage abstractions out of French domestic dress making patterns sourced from the fashion magazine Le Petit Echo De La Mode. Published in Paris between 1897 and 1983 Le Petit Echo de la Mode was a popular fashion and lifestyle magazine that made fashion accessible to the stylish Parisian housewife. Within it, Narielwalla finds inspiration for his beautiful compositions. "My art practice looks at how tailoring patterns can be viewed as beautiful drawings in their own right." he says, "As drawings they are abstract shapes of the human form, preceding Abstraction and Cubism."
