Mary Queen of the Universe features meticulously crafted sculpture, drawings, and prints by the fraternal collaborative team Steven and William Ladd. For more than ten years, Steven and William have explored the blurred boundaries between design and fashion, fine art and craft. In a decade of working together, with a concentrated—almost obsessive—fascination with materials and process, they have forged the foundation for a rich and productive creative process from their common early childhood memories and a close familial bond.
