The Underpinnings Museum

Wonderful to discover that Strumpet & Pink's "Garden of Delights' is now included in The Underpinnings Museum. The following post International Women's Day: Celebrating Lingerie's Women Designers, includes the piece in a one-off colour combination. It was a 'bridal request' if my memory serves me well?

‘Garden Of Delights’ knickers, c. 2008, UK, by Strumpet and Pink. A collaboration between Fine Artists Melanie Probert and Lisa Z. Morgan, Strumpet & Pink was their quest to create the perfect pair of knickers. A radical approach to underwear saw the pair experiment with luxurious textiles and details that the lingerie world had not seen before, creating couture, erotically charged wearable art. Sadly Melanie Probert passed away in 2015. Lisa Z. Morgan continues to create Art, which can be followed on her blog ‘The Pink Investigator’.

Adjusted, Re-adjusted and Ready

"Be The Pink Panther and Your Loves will be like The Wasp and The Orchid, The Cat and The Baboon" is now complete, at least in the embroidered form. The piece as a virtual experience will be evolving over a period of time as an experiment on The Laboratory Arts Collective's website.

Time to Dream

"All people dream, but not equally. Those who dream by night in the dusty recesses of their mind, wake in the morning to find that it was vanity. But the dreamers of the day are dangerous people, For they dream their dreams with open eyes, And make them come true."
— D.H. Lawrence

Individual Covenant - The Peace Table and Birthing Tikkum Olam

It was both a privilege and an emotionally gut churning experience to offer and accept the covenant created by Mierle Laderman Ukeles. In signing and entering into the covenant, I am now committed to the role or mission that I have defined. What I proposed therefore, as a means to "re-pair, re-create, re-invent" challenges me personally, can be an active part of the everyday and yet holds (I believe) the potential to ripple and reach far beyond.

Piped Leather Seam

The sketches for Mr and Mrs Chairs continue. Once the leather is cushioned with cotton batting, a more ample form will develop.

About Me

My photo
Lisa Z. Morgan is an artist, designer and writer. The subject and object of desire has been a palpable constant within her artistic expression both as a motivation and in its embodiment or articulation. Through her creativity and research Morgan examines how the value of provenance, of rarity and storytelling, puts into question or provokes our understanding and relationship towards desire and the desire impulse. Her focus has been how we may access, stimulate and touch the internal points of registration or the emotional dynamics of bodily perception. In essence she attempts to define and make manifest the feeling of feeling. Her work inhabits a space where art, semiotics, design and fashion intersect. Morgan is the Co-Founder of STRUMPET & PINK and the Co-Founder of The Lavender Hinge. She is the author and creative editor of Design Behind Desire and also a contributor to SHOWstudio and The Laboratory Arts Collective.
