MY DESTINY

The “Clairvoyant Fortune‐Teller visit” represents a risky, smoky fantasy that some of us share. As our overly active minds grind out scenarios of what’s around the next corner for us we are sometimes lulled into the luxurious thought of. “wouldn’t it be a lovely thing if someone could just give us the answers to all of our key questions?” Its like seeing a fairy magician that can advise us on what to do in some of our most perilous and important moments ...

While divine guidance and the plotting of our futures is always possible from various sources, most of the time, the answers we seek are within us, if we but take the time to look.

Symbolic of the outfit in Marc Andre J. Fortier’s work

Clothing is the external packaging we choose to wear which sometimes reflects who we are, or who we might want to be that day or night. How we meticulously adorn ourselves and fashion, on its own, are absolutely a form of artistic expression. Fabric, texture, flow, color, cut and embellishment, come together like a symphony that when joined, can sing out a lingering impression. Today's rigid and dark wool suit can be worn to communicate power and authority like a kind of military uniform to warn others off and tomorrow's layered, transparent and draping shift can be partnered to reflect whimsy and invitation.... May we never tire of this ritual of self expression...

MY MONOPOLY

This ready-to-wear graphic ensemble reflects the fundamental foundation dream of mankind. The ownership of a home and the ability to retreat into it represents our most basic need. Home and property ownership symbolizes our achievement and a right of passage in our lifetime. It is where we cultivate our lifestyles, entertain our fantasies and create our legacies.

The random collage of colorful Monopoly images from our childhood game on the suit remind us that we should remember to not take ourselves too seriously, that our lives should not be contained or defined within or by the walls of our homes, and that we should live each day colorfully and not be afraid to show our creative and unique selves in all of our pursuits.

After all, life is a single-chance game and we should be certain to play it well.

POKER FACE

This fashion ensemble speaks to us about the Game of Life which we could compare to a wonderfully lengthy Game of Poker.

We come into the world with a dealt or inherited hand of cards. Some will say our futures are pre-determined…

The real “Gamers” will refuse to accept this passage and will know that we all hold a hand of cards that will determine the outcome of our Game based on our perception of the rules and how we navigate with our fellow opponents.

Over time, we learn that the game of life will necessitate the development of many skills if we wish to achieve the successful and prosperous lives we seek. Experience will be our best teacher and as such, over time we progressively accumulate our chips with each strategic win. As we mature, we continue to plot and fine tune our game, we keep our eyes open and will identify and consider balance and risk.

When the tempo is right, and the odds are good, we will embrace chance like a lost lottery ticket and throw the dice… and in this way the big wheel will keep on turning for us….

JSo I can leave this world a better place.

SUPER WOMAN

Flying above skyscrapers in the dark of night
Wandering in the shadowy gloom, wary, ready for anything
To rescue the innocent... or fight lunatics
Remaining on the lookout to save the sleeping city.
