Statement of Work
Peggy Noland is an artist based in Kansas City and Los Angeles. Using clothing as her medium, she opened the storefront Peggy Noland in 2006 with a collection that drew from Pop Art, Japanese streetwear, and club kid fashion. Since then, the concept shop has evolved into an Oldenburg-like retail installation that responds to consumer culture by exaggerating trends – most recently creating puffy paint plays on brands and logos.
An avant-garde sense of humor is a strong current in Noland’s work; absorbing the world around her and then reflecting it back through the mirror of a distorted funhouse. The result of which is content driven clothing who’s supporters include Rihanna, Lady Gaga and Gossip. She has exhibited internationally throughout Barcelona, Berlin, and New York and her work have been featured in The New York Times, Dazed and Confused, Interview and WWD.
