LIMITED EDITION SWEATERS: ARTIST TRIBUTES
hand loomed and hand finished in pure wool
These sweaters were designed for the Deeply Superficial exhibition (2015), which explored the creation of images which appear 3 dimensional but are on a flat surface – in this case a knitted garment. (Deeply Superficial is an expression Andy Warhol used to describe himself; it seemed appropriate.)
The sweaters are tributes to some of my favourite artists. When viewed through chroma depth glasses the colours appear to float out in front of the garment at various distances. (A free pair of chroma depth glasses comes with every sweater)
M. C. Escher (17 June 1898 – 27 March 1972)
Dutch graphic artist known for his mathematically inspired woodcuts and lithographs featuring impossible constructions and images, and incorporating 3 dimensional objects into a 2 dimensional plane.
This long sleeved sweater features an interpretation in stitches of Escher’s 1955 wood engraving/woodcut Rind on the front, with the artist’s name and some pertinent quotes from the artist on the back.
