“Splashes, drips and brushed slashes of white bring this apparitional gown to life on a midnight background. For me, this ball gown was a feminine counterpoint to the freestanding bathrobes suavely posed by Jim Dine as “Pop” art dawned in the 1960s. Bean’s gown has an imaginative force and elusive presence all its own:it creates a decorative and decorous ruckus with exquisite drawing and a concert of memories.”
