    wow forcefield was really awesome

  • Times like this… words would be nice. It appears many of these are ritual dance costumes. Part wearable sculpture + part performance?

  • lapetitefaon

    I’m at an absolute loss. These are so insanely ALIVE. 5 is my favorite, I love all the colorful ones too obviously but something about the guy just covered in pieces from the earth, I’m so in love with it!

  • This shows so well, that ART is simply non-exclusive in regards to geography nor race or religion, Art happens among all, and this is simply FUN FUNKY is plain WOW
    LOVE IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Pingback: Phyllis Galembo [Awww!] « The Daily Take()

  • Reminds me of Nick Cave’s soundsuits

  • SUCH great use of color.

  • Do people like the photography or the fabric? The document or the message? It sparks some interesting thoughts/comments.

    • that’s an interesting point – for me, i think the images have been expertly captured by a talented photographer.

      i have seen maaany totally dull photos taken at the most vibrant festivals/parades

      • I agree. When viewing Phyllis’s portfolio, a consistent approach and technique emerges. Photography and current screen based digital medium can often be perceived as ‘unreal’ or a phenomenon. The capture permits a comprehensive musing and the opportunity for interaction or personal narrative. A good curatorial choice for the graphic happy booooooom visitor.
