Dimensions Variable (Shirt), 2006

Cotton base sheet/stenciled abaca, screenprint

40 in h x 38.5 in w

Edition of 20

In collaboration with Dieu Donné Papermill, New York & Lower East Side Print Shop, New York

A two-toned sheet of handmade paper maps out the contours of a deconstructed oxford shirt. Within these forms are screenprinted dotted lines that mimic the size guides on a clothing pattern template. These lines track the topography of the body in different stages of maturity, suggesting the traces of an infant’s first shirt within that of an adult’s.
