For All To See – Carlo Pagoda

9 February, 2020

We all ponder what ought to be done and how things ought to be to achieve a better world. Subconsciously we know what is right and what is not and we empathise with those less fortunate than us, but how many of us have the capacity to express it, let alone step out and show it.

In this work, Pagoda proposes that rather than concealing our thoughts, we express them outwardly, physically in the form of wearable art, as a second skin, symbolically revealing our inner convictions.

With the Sunflowers heavenly gaze towards the divine sun, seeking its renewing and life giving rays and our longing for equality amongst all, this coat is for every season and all mankind seeking ‘Justice and Mercy’.
