my third year work
as my body of work this year is a continuation of the ideas in my third year, i thought it best to give a little background.
last year i was looking at the unique characteristics that occur in my everyday surroundings. for me, beauty lies in the simple and the ordinary, the everyday scenes and objects you pass by on a daily basis. i experimented with imagery in an abstract approach, to generate pattern suitable for screen-printing to create a dialogue among the element of shape, colour and texture. my goal was to develop a range of layered imagery to create one off designs for a limited production run.
using this concept of the everyday in my designs, i wanted to create a series of work where the function of the textiles would be suitable for everyday purposes. i decided to go with bags and skirts, however could also see my prints being suitable in the interior space.
these are some pictures taken when i was installing my work in the gallery for my assessment last year.
