…WITH­OUT WHOM THIS IS­SUE WOULD NOT HAVE BEEN POS­SI­BLE

Philadelphia Style - - Contents -

Sarah Jor­dan is a Na­tional Mag­a­zine Award­nom­i­nated writer who lives in Philadelphia. She has writ­ten ex­ten­sively on the arts, fash­ion, and style for na­tional and re­gional mag­a­zines and news­pa­pers. She is the author of four books. For this is­sue of Philadelphia Style, Jor­dan in­ter­viewed artist Leila Cartier. Be­hind the story: “Leila showed me her col­lages in her sun-filled stu­dio, lo­cated in a funky South Philly re­habbed fac­tory. Then, sit­ting on her great-grand­mother’s glam­orous cream-col­ored sofa—among piles of fash­ion mag­a­zines— Cartier talked art, art his­tory, about grow­ing up in Ken­tucky, about grand­par­ents em­i­grat­ing from Syria and Le­banon, and her evo­lu­tion as an artist.” On Cartierõs work: “She uses jew­elry col­lages to ad­dress con­cepts of time—eter­nal and fleet­ing— and the se­duc­tive power of vis­ual plea­sure. Her work has a smart tough­ness and chic­ness em­bed­ded in each piece.”
