Stripey Trousers

Phillip Reeves
Oil on dress maker's paper
100 x 50cm
A hand-painted, hand-cut pair of paper trousers, part of Phillip Reeves' Paper Clothes series. Each piece in this series is comprised of individual paper components, hand cut from dressmaker's paper and hand painted in oil paint by the artist. Referring to children's paper dolls and Japanese Noh costumes, these incongrous, beautiful, life-size cut out clothes are pulled out and scaled up from Philip's more normally structured paintings and placed in relation to our own body, creating a playfully absurd, satisfying experience. Colours throughout this series remain the same but each piece is hand made, so details will differ. This work is designed to be hung directly onto a wall, and is supplied with velcro pads for the purpose.
