Michelle Murray's work is the point at which a garment transcends mere fashion to become wearable art. She employs the Japanese Shibori dyeing technique which is likely the oldest variation of tie-dye methods for coloring silk. The results are stunningly gorgeous.
However precise the artist is though, what emerges reflects the organic nature of this process. It is the hauntingly beautiful “ghosts” between the over-tones, which the artist has little control over, that define and give life to the piece.
The intensely complex pleating, pleasing feel and curious springiness of the silk are the trademarks of Michelle Murray’s style. She designed the entire “Pine Winds Shibori” line. Her work is exhibited around the world.
