Gabrielle Mayer is a painting and drawing professor at the University of Louisville. Professor Mayer’s life size renderings of women’s fancy dresses play with color and form but also explore the significance and impact of clothing and style in our culture. Her paintings place a single high fashion garment in illusionistic full color against a flat background of another color to create a dazzling “embodied but not inhabited dress in paint.” See some of her other work here.
