    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. :heart:

    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) :wub:
    Coiled and twined waxed linen thread; 11-1/2 x 8 x 10 in.

    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.

    thank you for the thread, wheneveriwakeup !

    i'm very fond of her approach, to her work and to life.. just being led as she says
    i think it allows a kind of spontaneity and energy to create work from this, but i feel it's a tad missing from these last two you posted here

    it would be interesting to compare Costa's collection with hers and see the likeness.. i thought it's quite nice not only has he worked with shape, but he's even incorporated the line work the stitches cause naturally in her sculptures right into the calvin klein fabrics

    ^ Yes... :heart:

    You're welcome, Gius. Glad you like!

    I love how honest she is about her work and how she goes about doing it. There are no 'smoke-in-mirrors' qualities about her. She just does what she feels.

    I see Ferne Jacobs work the most in these looks...
