Even though I have escaped from the closet, the closet has not escaped me. In my imagination and in my work, the closet is an archive, full of wonders, artifacts, and memories that form a rich history. The closet contains examples of beauty and suffering. Paul by Paul by Paul is a group of wearable garments as conceptual sculptures. In this context, “collection” has a double meaning, referring to groups of garments presented as a body of work and to an accumulation of objects. Paul by Paul by Paul is more like an accumulation; it avoids homogenous aesthetics and employs a variety of strategies for transforming second hand materials into one of a kind clothes.

Gallery hours are T-F 12-6pm and Saturday 12-5pm.
