AC/DC, the Virgin Mary and Child — a collaboration? Why not! Here at Skarfe we continue to explore the fascination and utter joy of turning a significant piece of contemporary art into something that is uniquely wearable, and more importantly attainable!
Imagine yourself swathed in the arm-like branches of artist, Nell’s ‘Mother of the Dry Tree’ painting, hung at Sydney’s Museum of Contemporary Art, as part of The National: 2017. Rendered upon a luxuriously soft and lightweight cashmere and modal blend, this oversized piece is both haunting and seductive. Fusing religious iconography with a rock ‘n’ roll aesthetic, our scarf exemplifies the way in which material and image combine to create its own distinctive art form. Nell’s work literally speaks for itself- with its wailing ovoid shapes that could possibly be singing a rendition of ‘Highway to Hell’. Now isn’t that an interesting thought?!
