About Starr Hagenbring
My work is the continuing experimentation of painting, cutting, piecing and stitching fabrics into different patterns. The images and graphics are painted by hand with brush, using a variety of techniques of layering and solids depending on the desired effects. The graphics cover every inch of fabric and are painted with a 3/8' brush. The pieces are designed to be viewed 360 degrees, and with movement. To see half the garment is to see only half the story. Much of the fabric is vintage and has been reclaimed. Some of it has never been used, some of it has been rescued from deconstructed garments.
