This collaborative video came to light when Gary's friend/musician Naomi Yang played a Molly Drake song for him. (Molly Drake is musician Nick Drake's mother.)
Gary had been thinking about "hope" as the last evil in Pandora's Box and it inspired them to do this piece together.
He created the cut-outs and collages by using the artwork and source material for the Gary Graham Fall 2014 Collection. All are of Middle Eastern motifs that he discovered while working with the Metropolitan Museum of Art's textile curators.
In the end, Gary received approval from the Drake Foundation to use the Molly Drake song, and was also fortunate enough to work with rock lighting designer Susanne Sasic.Back To Blog
