These adornments by Megan Mitchell are so innovative. I like the juxtaposition of jewels and sequins as open wounds, this gives beauty to the gashes and scabs that, with the real thing, would usually be ignored. I classify the pieces as wearable art as they are heavily conceptual and quite impractical. I am having trouble finding information on her work, but I can gather that Mitchell’s ideals are very similar to my own. Ideals of portraying the grotesque in a beautiful light, giving the viewer a new perspective on the ‘ugly’ and hopefully then encouraging them to see the beauty in the typically undesirable.
