pillow building

September 14, 2012

I thought I would share with you some images of a commission I worked on this summer. I was approached by a family friend to develop a series of pillows about the famous 18th artist family the Peales. Father Charles Willson Peale and son Raphaelle and daughter Angelica all reside in pillow form for this series. Elder Peale actually practiced the art of silhouette so these are derived from his work. I loved this commission because I further my charge to bring meaning to decorative objects and have even the pillows tell stories.
