Can you imagine an artist weaving together vibrantly radiant spools of yarn and thread into intricate patterns?
Emilio Cavallini, who is a renowned avant-garde fashion maven, structures his artwork on a palette of geometric arrangements. Dizzying in the most exhilarating ways, his collection – featuring in a “Harmony Runs On A Threat” exhibit at GR Gallery in New York City starting Thursday Sept. 8 – demonstrates an artistic fluency. Unsparing in color and vision, viewers can treat their eyes to wonder.
His imaginations are a beautiful ecosystem of threads: carefully constructed labyrinths. Unsurprisingly, Cavallini’s work reflects the delicate spirit illuminating his fashion creations.
He expounds on weaving elaborate designs, which speak to the synergy between chaos, organization and placement. “I was breaking down barriers, going beyond the limits of censorship,” said Cavallini about his collection, which draws energies from spatialism and constructivism.
