Seamstress Sarah Bahr and artist Hugh O’Rourke collaborated to create this killer suit made from a used drop cloth in reference to Joseph Beuy’s famous Felt Suit.
According to Sarah Bahr:

This project helped remind me of my interest in the meaning of clothing and the emotional response humans can have to sentimental clothing. This suit is a portrait of a painter, a garment made of the leftovers in the art making process.
