Image Statement: In the tradition of my practice, I often create a relation neckpiece. Worn to the relation scuplture’s exhibition opening reception. The relation sculpture is the first piece submitted Corazon Alado currently on view at the 41st Contemporary Craft exhibition at the Mesa Contemporary Art Museum. This is the latest in the mashup of hand sewn and embroidered sneaker sculpture on a tablet woven cord.
