Guerra de la Paz

gdlp_sunt_2008

Old discarded clothes guide Miami artists Alain Guerra and Neraldo de la Paz to create works that are fueled by their “silent histories.” After they began to discover their love for using found objects in their work, they became inspired by the trashed clothes they found at a secondhand store near their home. Out of these materials, they’ve constructed bodies, nests, fabulous mounded towers of garments, and whole families of cotton people, eerily alluding to those that wore the clothes when they were new.

    these are so much fun! i love the idea of clothes as an art-making tool. they could use more of a conceptual backing though. why make colorful rainbows out of clothes? what else can you say with clothes that might have more meaning and content?
