Tomato 001 - Foulard
Larissa’s first series of Foulard focuses on her Florentine heritage and the Renaissance - these foulards take various details from zucchini flowers, tomatoes and candies all the way to Botticelli’s Birth of Venus. A Foulara is a piece of silk that can fold to serve multiple purposes. It can transform into a bandeau, top, scarf, handbag or even a sling for a broken arm.
This is a two-step print: the original hand-drawn component was uploaded and then distorted in Photoshop to juxtapose the tradition of painting with computer effects and challenge the definition of drawing itself.
