Art Bra Austin is a fundraiser for Breast Cancer Resource Center of Texas. Artists and designers create/design bras for a professional runway show in which all the models are breast cancer patients and survivors. The bras are auctioned off to raise money for the center. I collaborated with The Piazza Center to design and create this piece for one of Dr. Piazza's patients to model on the runway. This year's show looked a little different as it was virtual this time.
The name of this piece is "The Light". I turned to the cosmos for inspiration using images from the Hubble Space Telescope. I decided to recycle materials as I did for the Roadrunner piece in 2016. I hand-painted black leather cut from an old leather jacket using iridescent and interference acrylic paint, adding vintage rhinestone accents to the front and back for a little extra sparkle.
