Troy Montes-Michie: Rock of Eye
By Troy Montes-Michie
To tailor a garment by "rock of eye" is to rely on the drape--on experience over mathematical measurement--in the fitting process. It is a kind of drawing in space--a freehand, an intuition, a trust of materials. Rock of Eye, published on the occasion of Troy Montes-Michie's (born 1985) solo exhibition at the California African American Museum, is a collection of the artist's collages, drawings, and found and woven images sourced from vintage erotic magazines, French tailoring magazines, found photographs and other materials.
