Calhoun Street Dresses
Well-known for painting women in dresses, the artist played up her personal amusement of finding these dresses on mannequins for this quant-meets-contemporary, small-town piece. Capturing a decorative corner of Historic Downtown Bluffton, South Carolina, the artist references her “painting from life” mantra noting the odd mix between the feminine frivolity of the cottage dress shop and the “true to life” interplay with utilitarian, unsentimental realism in the stop sign, telephone poles, and of-the-time SUV. You can spot the artist’s familiar inclusion of red and pink subtle blooms that pair with the pinks of signage, lettering, and fabrics.
