Taken from a 'Vetements' campaign depicting Kim Kardashian and one of her children, Stolz decontextualises the image from its origin of fashion publication, to elucidate additional readings such as the unconscious drives behind its engineering to consume 'Vetements' apparel. The materiality of the work— painted in velvet (no paint required)—responds to the fear of finitude and existential anxiety by representing the image within the tenuously held brushstrokes of velvet pile, open to disappearance from a touch of the hand, or even a simple change in light.
