Self-Portrait in Pink Zippers, 2009

My 2009 artist-in-residency and exhibit at Forest Hills Fine Arts Center in Grand Rapids, Michigan, gave me the opportunity to work on a series of 7 pieces in the humorous vein.  Since I love pink (if I ever had a rock band, I probably call it "Pink Overload.")  On this one, long pink zippers were stitched together with a bustier underneath.  At the beginning of the exhibit the zipper was underneath the bustier, at the end of the exhibit it was down near my navel (therefore, there was artist-viewer interaction).
