The Steve Miller ‘Fashion Animals’ series places high-end designer fashion accessories and captures them under an x-ray. The prints were created by artist Steve Miller, and collides the fashion world with the animal kingdom. Producing colorful representations of an array of handbags and shoes from designers such as Louis Vuitton and Chanel, the series reveals a sense of exoticism in these familiar objects.
Miller contrasts these bright, luxurious finds with black and white x-rays of the bodies of Brazilian creatures in order to make a statement about contemporary culture. According to artist’s website, the juxtaposition created in the Steve Miller Fashion Animals series is a way to show how the fashion items “have their own exoticism, their own rarity and cache. They are physically manufactured and their meaning is entirely manufactured.”
