Anna Sokolova and Liz Kennedy fall into a surreal state in ‘Paint Your Dream’ by Jamie Nelson for Vision China, February 2015. Between the path to progressiveness and the trail of tears lives a road that reveals the truth. A mind-bending mix of color/craft, this story celebrates the effusive nature of modern art. Fantasies erupt, as (Stylist) Lisa Jarvis lets the flood of fashion fill our heads as it makes its way through the body. Designs devour from Alexander McQueen, Dolce & Gabbana, Helmut Lang, Hugo Boss, Jeremy Scott, Philip Treacy, Proenza Schouler, Roberto Cavalli & Vivienne Westwood. A collection of chaos breaks through the scene capturing our creative unconscious. Makeup Artist, Yuki Hayashi brings the bounty of beauty to the page like paint being brushed over a palette. Decadence seen in a dizzying rush, (Hairstylist) Kunio Kohzaki defines his dews with styles that are sculpted to the sky. Though this has been shot in a photographic studio, one sees the piece like a poetic peacock. To let the hand of freedom work one must first recognize the gift of nonconformity.
Art of Life Reflected…
Ravaged beauty borne to run
like a rare bird caught in flight,
her feathers flair and skin reveals
this gorgeous tale of arts delight.
Loquacious limericks seized my soul
held me silent then let me go,
it bleeds in baths of sunset cries
with winds that carry wings on high.
Freedom comes and Freedom goes,
for those who last the day will know,
that all the hurry will some day slow
to the rapturous waves of love.
