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)
Roy Lichtenstein (27 October 1923 – 29 September 1997) American pop artist who produced hard edged precise paintings of images from popular culture, favouring the comic strip as his main inspiration. His tongue in cheek humour documented while it parodied.
The long sleeved zip up jacket features knitted adaptations of his 1962 painting ART and his 1965 painting Sunrise with the quote “Straight lettering is as good as any other shape” on the front.
