So after an intense study of all things encompassing Francisco Costa's spring 2010 collection over at Calvin Klein, the lovely works of Ferne Jacobs were brought to my attn. She (along w/ 90's Kate Moss) were Costa's inspiration for the collection. A brief bio on the artist... A few works... 'String of Pearls' (2004-2005) Coiled waxed linen thread; 23-1/2 x 20 x 13 in. 'Centric Spaces' (2000) Coiled and twined waxed linen thread; 15 x 12 x 11 in. 'The Dance' (1989) Coiled and twined waxed linen thread; 11-1/2 x 8 x 10 in. *** bio and photos from flintridgefoundation.org The raw, sexual energy of Jacobs work is present in Costa's collection, especially in the fabrics used... but like these pieces, the clothing has a beautifully subdued disposition @ first glance until one looks closer.
