Artist’s Statement: Where does inspiration come from? Our universe shakes and trembles, breaking into millions of shards of colours. This reversible jacket’s jewel tones tumble out of the darkness, suspended by a spider’s silk, reflecting our humanity, our brilliance. Shadow balances light, each completing the other, all within us. Show your true colours and wear them well.
