THE HETEROSEXUAL SKIRT: PANTIRA IN LOVE EXPOSURE

Wrecked cars and wrinkled clothes are drawn with the same texture in the works of Geoff Darrow. If we may, for a moment, visualise clothing as hard and inarticulable, we will see that clothing would have resistance, an external force that acts upon the wearer. It would have the ability to displace, to restrict and to restrain the body. We assume that it is the wearer that articulates the garment, but if we swap the roles and make clothing harder than the meagre strength of bodies could bear, clothing would wear bodies more than bodies wear clothing.
