The Harlequin, a painting enlarged and printed onto shantung silk, was the first time that I had used this medium- digital printing. By presenting the work as a wall hanging I wanted to make reference to current research that I have began to undertake into the crossover of textile design and Modernist aims. This includes the Omega Workshops and the Vorticists in Britain, Sonia Delaunay-Terk in France, the Constructivist, Liubov Popova and Pablo Picasso (from mid 20th Century).
See below for installation photographs of the work that I exhibited at Wirksworth Festival.
