TEXTILE INSPIRED PLATES

TEXTILE INSPIRED PLATES
March 20, 2010 Clementina





Amongst working on various different threads, (pun intended!) I have been drawing inspiration from a selection of African textiles, in particular the Fante flags and Egyptian applique. I am seeking to achieve a type of simple graphic statement which links up with earlier work of mine where I have applied  Russian Constructivist and Suprematist motifs.

    These look very interesting, I like them allot. Especially the very first plate. It is the simplicity and starkness that appeals to me. The strenght of the plates lie within the mimimal forms and shapes of the decorative motifs – they have a striking naive quality about them.
