Lyle XOX: Head of Design
by Rebekah Frank

Let's push the conversation about art jewelry by looking at a makeup artist from the drag and fashion world who photographs himself while wearing trash on his head, shall we? Lyle Reimer’s fantastic assemblages, captured with formal portrait photography, are collected in Rizzoli’s stunning new linen-bound coffee table book , Lyle XOX: Head of Design . W hile they don’t show wearables in the traditional sense, Reimer’s portraits add to the art jewelry conversation if we consider the materials, methods, and style of the work used to create them.
