Armour Clad in LOVE

Filmmaker PD Packard uses printmaking in combination with Nature to create visual poetry that shares her thirst for color, nature, and unconditional LOVE, not conditional romance.

Using skills from her years designing in the fashion industry, Packard created a suit from her prints to represent the idea that even during challenging times, our earth, and all of humanity is Armour Clad, and protected by LOVE. To bring the artworks to life she interlaces and overlays live action video with flat animation mediums in combination with music that flow from one scene to the next.

Director Biography - PD Packard

Creating An Experience

PD Packard is a multi-media artist living in the Prospect Heights neighborhood of Brooklyn, New York. Specializing in color, she is passionate about teaching inventive ways to demystify color by creating decorative patterned paper for book and box art, sculpture, and installation. To expand this craft further she uses her original artwork, video clips, and photography to create animated vignettes that share her thirst for color, nature, and unconditional love, not conditional romance.

Awarded a scholarship to Central St Martins, in London, England, she obtained a BFA degree in Textile Design and Fashion. When she returned to the states she developed packaging, graphics for point-of-purchase displays, original textiles and surface designs primarily for the cosmetic industry. Working with cosmetic buyers from the department stores Barneys New York, Neiman Marcus, Henri Bendels, and Bergdorf Goodman, she designed and produced travel & cosmetic bags sold nationally and internationally. Many of the principles in printmaking are similar to fabric and surface design making an easy and natural transition for her into fine art in 2009.

Her work has been exhibited throughout the United States and Internationally. March 2019 she completed a Fellowship Residency at Scuola Internazionale di Grafica Venezia, Italy sponsored in part by The Boston Printmakers and Speedball Art Products.

Director Statement

My work is committed to bringing attention to the power Nature has to influence our perception of art, and design. Without the use of shock, shame or guilt I use Nature’s beauty as a protest to Love more for every hate.
