  Tears & Lace

Tears & Lace is the result of my collaboration with Darquer Lace of Calais, under the artistic direction of Stéphane Plassier, who first encountered my series, The Topography of Tears on exhibit at Palais de Tokyo, and recognized an affinity between the tear imagery and lace through their shared intricacy and presence in life's most intimate moments.

Creating a Chantilly lace from the image of a tear that I photographed through a microscope was a perfect fusing of emotion and textile, a union of the temporal and timeless in a synthesis of contemporary photomicrography and historic savoir-faire.

As noted above, The Topography of Tears series was exhibited in 2015 in Paris at Palais de Tokyo, in Le Bord des Mondes, curated by Rebecca Lamarche-Vadel, who described it as work that reveals the existence of a multitude of territories inside of us… attempting to make visible through images, the physical manifestations of the intangible and undecipherable.

Tears & Lace inaugurated Darquer's collection of artist lace in 2016 at Premiere Vision, and at Darquer's event at the Academy of Architecture, Hotel de Chaulnes at Place des Vosges, Paris.

In 2018 Tears & Lace is included in Haute Dentelle, an exhibition curated by Sylvie Marot, at Cite Dentelle, The Museum of Lace and Fashion, in Calais, in a creation by Bertrand Guyon for Schiaparelli.

Tears & Lace is included in The Cotsen Textile Traces Study Collection, Los Angeles, CA
