Inhabiting a De Kooning

Willem de Kooning, Woman V (1952-53)

One bedsheet,
red and yellow acrylic wash (more pink than anticipated),
other acrylics
putting on the de kooning
thinking about it only as a dress and as a fabric. even though that isn't what it was for.
further explanation of meaning pending.
it is 96% hand sewn and i think four seam lines from neck to hem,
and also worn here with a hat.
