My friend, and fellow artist, Lisa Mikulski, visited recently, and shot several photos inside chéz casey. It's so interesting to see my life through another person's eyes. These are my 1950s German Christmas bells, which hang from my ceiling fan. The crystal is a product tie-in from some haute couture designer's newest women's perfume, ca 1992, perhaps LaCroix or Versace. And the ever-present dust. I feel like Miss Havisham sitting here. Or Little Edie of Grey Gardens,the inspiration for "Pink Gardens." Click on the image to enlarge, as always here at casey/artandcolour, lol!
I did one of Christian LaCroix's first pages back in 1987, in WWD, Women's Wear Daily, the "bible" of the fashion industry as it's known in the biz. This crystal necklace would have come from Macy's, though, a gift to my mother. I always brought her the printed WWDs to read, and she was fascinated by the world I found myself ensconced in. I made sure to get her a fragrance or gift of some sort from every designer she read about. She even planted a "LaCroix Rose Garden" one year, with pure magenta, bright red and flame orange roses, his first year's couture signature colors, lol.
Lisa is an awesome photographer. She is a good friend and has lovely, and brilliant, adult offspring, lol. She came to my first art showings when she had no reason to—forever in her debt : )
