S'AMUSE HOODS

       S’AMUSE®
        An ARTIST’s  STORY 
          By saM talBot-keLLy
S'AMUSE is a brand of sustainable clothing handmade and local to Vermont. It is socially responsible lifting community via the slow fashion ethic. S'AMUSE HOODS are both male and female. As an artist and designer of clothes I want to embrace the eccentric beauty, the non-sensical, the strange, and have fun. When wearing a hood we can feel the appreciation for solitude, for independence and the retreat they provide in our bustling world.  At the same time the juxtaposing relationships of fabrics with colors and patterns, unite these independent parts to a greater whole and form with a sense of belonging. They are made of organic cotton blends, biodegradable tencel, organic velour with water-based dyes, while the wool is from our local Johnson Woolen Mills. I hope you enjoy them as they are made with plenty of heart and adventure.

BULL PLANET

 This is a commission I did this summer.  It is an oil painting of 6 by 4 feet.
 The bull references the strength of  healthy financial markets. It mediates between currency and the earth. I like the subtle mischievous character that it embodies.
  All kinds of currency transfers from around the world are in this upper region.
 Gandhi is on the Indian rupee and Winston Churchill was a great politician of many talents including the arts. We need spiritual teachers like Gandhi and also grounded, inspiring and innovative leaders in all areas of the world like Churchill.
 The currency wraps around the sides of the canvas.

LE POPESS






LE POPESS- She is a composer who assumes great authority in her craft. Overly serious most of the time and bent on being a true master of making dreams come true she thinks of ways to wield her power. Funnily enough her power is strongest when she lets go of her pride and fixed sense of solemness. Izabel Nielsen is my model for Le POpess.

GREEN POET




GREEN POET- is a woodland nymph who strives to be in tune with her existence. She communicates to herself daily through dance and listens for moments of silence in Nature. Izzy Nielsen is the model and carries out this small idea perfectly

PINK HYDRA




PINK HYDRA- refers to Lernaean Hydra the multiple headed serpent in Greek Mythology who guarded the underworld and was killed by Heracles. PINK HYDRA is also a guardian but she takes precautions against anything that would destroy her achievements and power. She hovers in a creative space between darkness and the light side of consciousness. She thrives in maintaining balance between the two forces. As she delves deeper into her dark side she discovers death hugs the edges of her existence. Unable to accept her destiny she tries to rid of Death by kicking it across the vessel from which it came. Losing against this futility overwhelms her. Impulsively she chops her head off in the hopes of immortality.

LES FEMMES DE BOIS












LES FEMMES DE BOIS is a series of works that are at a beginning stage. I hope to create theatrical settings in a local forest as well as construct artificial worlds for them to exist.

'les femmes de bois'- this is one of my bathing suits made out of bark. 'She drips...' is displayed in a window at Salaam in Montpelier,Vt. I look forward to capturing her in the forest and in fictional contexts of my own making.
