Venetian Hotdog Disc 2

by Breeyn McCarney

The hottest record this side of Measuring Tape Island. Fan yourself, enjoy the swish of fringe, brag about your giant dragonfly. That dragonfly knows things. If you whisper just right, he might tell you some.

This piece is a preview of a larger series currently being created for my solo show in May. The dragonfly has been cut and shaped by hand out of sequin material. The under-layer of the wings are hand-painted to create a watercolour look inspired by a real dragonfly. As a former couture gown designer, I had a lot of fun creating all the beaded cascades of flowers – all the blossoms are also hand-painted. All elements have been hand-stitched onto the vintage fan. It is ready to hang.

It is reinforced and can actually be used as a fan if you wanna be real extra about it but my recommendation is to present it on a wall.
