BA (Hons) Textiles in Practice
Noticing the Unnoticed
As a multi-disciplinary artist/ designer and colourist my practice primarily focuses on replicating texture and colour from it’s inspiration. Beginning with photography, drawings, and mark making, these are then taken forward with dyeing, print, embroidery and collage. I bring creative approaches to the design realm by combining medias to produce experimental results. Colour and colour proportion are also prominent, combined with the composition. I work intuitively with these, utilising creativity as a form of self-expression and mindfulness. Working in this way, I am able to include a part of myself into every creation and expand on my own relationship with art and design.
This project draws inspiration from marks and colours in everyday life, such as litter, graffiti, scuffs and dirt. The collection is made up from mostly scrap fabric, ropes and plastic packaging. The conceptual pieces show a juxtaposition of organic shapes and everyday materials aiming to blend into their surroundings, whilst boasting eye catching colours and expressive embroidery to draw attention. This aims the viewer to ‘Notice the Unnoticed’ and pay attention to beauty in the mundane.
