Albrecht Durer self portrait 1498. CREAM AND BLACK attire carries a timelessness
Audrey Hepburn in a Royal ascot head dress. Black and white stripes never go out of style.
This is a fantastic work of art seen at the Royal Ascot Horse race. Its breath, structure and material is mind boggling. Similar to fireworks it descends from the sky.
Classic Marlene Dietrich sculptured with head wear.
Below are photos of Sam Talbot-Kelly’s work titled ‘Le Popess’ posted on www.samtalbotkelly.com
Le Popess is a character invented to show off a kind of authority. She is an eccentric composer who takes her craft of music and dance like she is responsible for the whole world. Overly serious most of the time and bent on being a true master of making dreams come true she thinks of ways to wield her power. Funnily enough her power is strongest when she lets go of her pride and fixed sense of solemness.
I bet we all have at least 10 hats that we wear throughout the year, no? The same goes for scarves too of course. Hats put us in moods and we wear specific hats that reflect our moods. SOmetimes we want to be seen other occasions we want a little “je ne sais quoi” to light us up or we want to make a clear statement. The head signifies a distinct area of our identity. Head wear states where our psyche is at while framing our faces which in wonderful ways differs for everyone. Here Le Popess is wearing a hat that is made out of ruffles made from old men’s shirts and old costumes. If she isn’t ordaining creativity, and stealing resources she is often in the woods as a ballerina.
