LARGER THAN LIFE is a solo exhibit of Joseph Abbati’s portraits of San Francisco drag queens turned into large scale tapestries. Those featured included well known drag queens who have contributed to the LGBTQ community: Sister Roma, Heklina, Peaches Christ, Honey Mahogany, Juanita More!, Creme Fatale, Grace Towers, and Juicy Liu. The exhibit had an opening reception on March 3 and will be exhibited throughout the month at Strut, 470 Castro St., San Francisco.
A black & white collection capturing the redwood forest in Cazadero, CA has a graphic quality that almost looks abstract. Available now at Propeller (555 Hayes St., San Francisco).
Here are some before photos and after pillows we created with our own photography and photos given to us by some of our happy customers. The portraits work best when the subject is center and there is room around the face to allow for the convex nature of the pillow to fall off and frame it. Discover how to make your own at DQtrs.
