Looking back through the artists I have researched for this module, the ones that stand out for form, texture, structure and pattern are Anneke Copier, Vincent Floderer and Issey Miyake.

Assignment Four Artists- The Veteran Pri...

MMT Assignment 4 - Research - Artists - Veterans project

Whilst researching print artists I came upon the Veteran Print Project. Established by Yvette M Pino in 2013, the project records the experiences of veterans, expressed in print. A number of artists have worked on the project since its inception and each print is the artist’s response to dialogue with an invidual veteran. Each image […]

Assignment Four Artists – Giovanni Bened

MMT Assignment 4 - Monoprinting - Exercise Four - Working with stencils

No printmaking research would be complete without reference to Giovanni Benedetto Castiglione. Credited with being the inventor of the monotype, using the reductive technique whereby the plate is inked and rags, brushes, fingers or other implements are used to remove the ink and create the image. Unlike the other printers from whom I have drawn […]

Assignment Four Artists – Kim Major-Geor

Assignment Four Artists – Kim Major-George

Kim Major-George is a British printmaking artist. Her prints are inspired by myth and fantasy and also have elements of spirituality. Major-George’s work is of particular interest to me as she uses a wide range of additional media to enhance and embellish her prints.

Assignment Three Artists – Rebecca Fairl

Assignment Three Artists – Rebecca Fairley

It is perhaps too narrow a description to refer to Rebecca Fairley as a textile artist since her work incorporates, but also extends beyond, the traditional textile media and processes. Using textiles as a tool for surface design, Fairley imprints and embeds patterns into concrete and other non-textile substrates. This juxtaposition of the harsh, brutal […]

Assignment Three Artists – Karine Jollet

Assignment Three Artists – Karine Jollet

Karine Jollet is a French sculptor. Working with old textiles, almost always in white, she uses clothes, bedsheets, handkerchieves and other materials that are closely connected with the person. These repurposed textiles are carefully and meticulously hand-stitched then stuffed with polyester to recreate aspects of the human form. This could be a dismembered body part […]

Assignment Two Artists – Hsiao-Chi Tsai

The work of Hsiao-Chi Tsai is extraordinarily diverse, ranging from large-scale, sculptural textiles to couture, ready-to-wear accessories and jewellery. A Taiwanese-born artist, now working in London, her work is described as wearable sculpture. An examination of her millinery clearly demonstrates this. With its use of different materials, from the traditional to the innovative, her hats […]
