with this quote by political philosopher Joseph Marie de Maistre invited West Hollywoods Church Boutique it’s guests to the showing of – “Trusted with Altars”. Despite the fact that the quoted individual was highly questionable in his views on society and art, the concept of ceremonies was elaborately interpreted in the skillfully curated presentation of couture, paintings and sculptures. Whether they are wearable, viewable or tangible – architectural shapes, excessive material manipulation and sculptural constructions are the common denominators of the pieces featured in the shown selection.
