Leather and Lace

In a series that explores the notion of surface through skin, fabric, and image, Leather and Lace is a collaboration between Ariana Page Russell and Allison Manch.  Page Russell works with photographs of skin that have been featured on this blog before, and Manch embroiders music and pop culture references on vintage handkerchiefs.   Utilizing embroidered images and text, along with photographed skin wallpaper designs, they have printed their own temporary tattoos and re claimed tattooing as dangerous and subversive.  A million miles from the sanitized versions presented by Chanel earlier this year.
