Mrs. Knapp has recently been transitioning from wearable art into mixed media textiles. She came across the event by accident in late January and only had a few weeks to complete it as it was due on February 14, 2016. Although, she did not have a lot of time to complete her work, she put an intense effort into it, working 12 hour days until completion. Since, Mrs. Knapp felt Michael Jackson defined THE Icon of pop culture, she felt compelled to meet this challenge.
"This work is inspired by the iconic sequined white glove that defined Michael Jackson for a generation. From his elaborate stage costumes and choreography of his short films; he defined the genre of the music video. He served as inspiration for all artists to become innovators and perfectionists of their craft and above all, to “follow your dreams wherever they may lead”.
Mrs. Knapp is hoping to do a garment and contemporary art quilt for the 30th Anniversary of the BAD album. Michael Jackson's BAD album was released on August 31, 1987, two days after his birthday.
