TwistedLamb and Julia Comita unveiled an immersive gallery experience, ICEBOUND, on Dec. 10th in NYC with an opening reception event to kick off the exhibit. Directed by TwistedLamb’s Mary Lee, and photographed by Julia Comita, ICEBOUND showcased large-scale photographic prints in a stunning visual release that weaved a portrait of courtship, domination, and the consummation of dueling elements born from fire and ice. With incorporated video, a motorbike installation, and music scored by Boreta of the Glitch Mob, the exhibit highlights the beauty of risk, and the ever-present sexuality in danger.
From start to finish, the event was packed with viewers anxious to see what Lee and Comita had created. A gown that viewers saw featured in several the photographs was designed by the talented Christian Siriano, who came out to support the opening, seen above with Mary Lee.
She is the mastermind behind the work, whose method of combining fashion, mythology, and sport dynamic has made her name synonymous with tribal lore and athletic ritualism. Lee has carved out a powerful presence in the art world wherein companies and luminaries alike seek out her incomparable style and imagination. “We’ve taken a history of working together on large and daring fashion projects, and created a powerhouse team whose aesthetic blows up the limits of art, fashion, and photography,” says Lee.
Julia Comita is a highly respected beauty and fashion photographer who is recognized for her dark, ethereal aesthetic and discriminating perspective on space and light. “We emphasize the portrayal of feminine strength, and our work draws heavily on ceremonial archetypes and the heroine form,” says Comita.
When asked what sparks her imagination, Lee says: “Making the impossible happen is what moves me. I’m into badass surreal worlds where surfing in ballgowns and ice-riding in high heels are a reality.”
True! Sky is the limit! Xoxo!!!
