"Jackie (Dallas)"
by sabine7 / November 23, 2005


Andrea Higgins was so influenced by her memories of her grandmother taking her to fabric stores during her childhood that she went on to incorporate these formative experiences into her work. Higgins paints the textured fabric of the various outfits of several of America’s first ladies, paintings evocative of a range of eras, politically and socially. Her tweeds and plaids and herringbones are painstakingly made up of thousands of tiny brush strokes, as seen in the detail of the fabric of Jackie Kennedy’s Dallas ensemble.
