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)
Rene Magritte (21 November 1898 – 15 August 1967)
Belgian surrealist painter, whose witty and thought provoking images set up a constant play between reality and illusion. Many of his paintings create an atmosphere of mystery by depicting ordinary objects in unusual contexts.
This long sleeved sweater features a knitted interpretation of his 1931 painting La voix des airs on the front, with the artist’s name and a few pertinent quotes on the back. I have called it Magritte’s Bells because the same bells appear as a recurring theme in many of his paintings.
