These ones are in storge in the city as i haven't made it back there since, and looking to find new homes...I will add them all one by one shortly, but in the mean time, from left to right ...
All are original sculptural 3D wall hung artworks, using clothing as my canvas.
The Power of Hope - A Tribute to Michelle Obama
"Sonia Kiki Jones, formerly Sonia Richter, was inspired to create an artwork after listening to Michelle Obama’s final speech as first lady. Obama's belief in the power of education, in the value of including all cultures, religions and backgrounds, and her awareness about the powerful statements you can make with fashion struck a chord with Richter.
Richter’s tribute work is based on the dress Michelle Obama wore to the Presidential Medal of Freedom Dinner at the White House in 2012 by Michael Kors, an American designer of immigrant parents. The artwork is grounded on a foundation of books to represent education, with national flowers from many nations winding their way up the lower part of the dress. Entwined amongst the flowers are symbols and charms representative of the cultures, religions and belief systems of the world: the Star of David
from Judaism, the Crescent Moon of Islam; Christianity and Hindu; of peace, love and hope; the sunflower for women’s rights, the protea for Africa, and many more. Richter gives us The Power of Hope.”
We are looking for a charity to donate this artwork to, it is currently in storage in Connecticut and would love to do some good in the world...please help us find an appropriate charity.
A Tribute to David Bowie
"Sonia Kiki Jones, formerly Sonia Richter, Her second tribute work is to David Bowie in a sculpture of his Union Jack Coat created by Alexander McQueen. In this work Richter pays homage to two of her favourite artists at once: “Bowie with his wild clothing choices, how he continually reinvented himself, and McQueen for his exceptional tailoring skills and creations that were stunning and sexy yet dark and protective.”
More clothing artworks being loaded soon...thank you for you patience.
