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 sweater features an interpretation of his 1964 painting Son of Man – which he said was a self portrait.
