Paul Erling

The combined work of Paul Erling considers apparel as an artistic medium and accepts abstract approaches as innovative design solutions. Gender, scale, and waste are all present mindsets, though not without a sense humor. Bicycles, rock 'n roll, girls, dreams, dungeons, dragons. There are individuals playing significant roles along the way; lending and listening to new boundaries, attention to detail, being here, now.

: A collection of artifacts, androgynous natures, learning curves, and juxtaposed mediums. There's an exploration of woven and knit materials through large-scale looms and needles; abstracting subtle details in the medium, shifting emphasis in size and texture, magnified, or treasured. Color balance varies in light as RGB fibers compete within the mix of yarn. Exaggerated, shapeless, dreamy; the wearer hides and reveals at once.
