Eloise Corr Danch: Life-size period costume dress made of paper, based on Valasquez’s “Las Meninas” painting

Eloise Corr Danch

My friend Eloise who I’ve mentioned here, has an amazing show at the Anthropologie at Rockefeller Center. She created a 50 pound paper dress based on the one in Valazquez’s “Las Meninas”, a painting that has always intrigued me due to all of the symbolism and iconography.

To read more about the incredible Eloise and this artwork, read Time Out New York’s blurb and see their photos. The ones above were taken by Eloise herself.

We’ve been trying to get together since Surtex and have only seen each other once at her b’day party because of busy schedules but maybe when her hands recover from all the paper cuts…we’ll catch up. Here’s what I made her for her b’day.

You’re amazing Eloise!
