My work will be featured in this exhibition next month
20/4/13 - 5/5/13
The Geometrics: Volume 1 showcases a new chapter in British textiles –
their meaning, possibility, diversity and reach. In the first of a series of
exhibitions, Volume 1 focuses on the interface between fine art,
film and fashion.
Geometrics have always been central to populist textile design, from Aztec
weave and Xhosa beadwork to Sonia Delaunay knit and Jonathan Saunders
print. The Geometrics: Volume 1 works this rich legacy into present day
processes, media and methods. Html patchwork, Nbedele-inspired plastics,
geometric performance gifs, embroidered wood, lazercut laminates and
open source design: this is contemporary British textiles, new media,
new language, new meaning.
The artists are a group of emerging practitioners and design activists
specializing in tactile mathematical form, pattern, structure and narrative.
The majority of them trained at the Royal College of Art and Chelsea College
of Art & Design and invite study in their own right.
A dynamic and inspiring public programme of events, workshops and
a one-day symposium accompany the exhibition. The Geometrics:
Volume 1 book is also launched outlining the artists working processes
and focus on geometrics.
