In this artwork, a fine yard of French rose-patterned lace is stretched around the bare wooden frame of an artist canvas, enabling the viewer to examine and contemplate the detailed and vast magnificence of the fabric intricacies.
Titled "The Rose Garden", the artwork's name consists of a wordplay inspired by the repetitive nature of the textile's very own motif.
The piece belongs to a series of three "fashion landscapes", where a single element of fashion is used to convey the notion of a place or a scenery.
"Is a fashion painting just the act of taking fashion and appreciating it as a painting: colour, form and texture?" This was one of the answers to the question "What is a fashion painting?", the creative brief I assigned to myself for Vogue Singapore's March "Creativity" issue.
Based in: Singapore
Having worked in the creative industry for a decade, Eduardo Enrique had his first foray into the visual arts when he was propelled by a strong urge to produce artworks as a form of social commentary. Drawing from his background as a Creative Director where he motivates his clients to understand the underpinnings of culture and its societal impacts, his artistic praxis similarly calls attention to the nuances that pop culture can have on the human psyche.
The artist explicitly denies talking about his nationality, as he maintains that one should not be judged based on their geographical origin. To that end, Eduardo looks towards elucidating universal human conditions as he believes that there are intrinsic qualities that connect us beyond borders and boundaries.
