Expressive Art

Here is an ink image created by my art student daughter. She has been unwell for 7 months with glandular fever and a post viral condition. She had to defer her studies at Central Saint Martins in London, and take to her bed, not easy for a creative free spirit.
This is one of five beautiful paintings she did recently ( she has been unable to do any art, during this period of ill health). It has been a very difficult time for her, but I think she is getting her Mojo back... HURRAY!

Art and textile design

I thought I would share a couple of textile designs produced by my daughter, who is in the first year of a textiles degree at Central St Martins.

These two silkscreen pieces are designed by using images from photographs taken when we were on holiday in India. I am not an art student, so will not try and discuss the process of silkscreen printing, but I do understand that it is quite a tricky process; as well as very time consuming.

If you look closely you can see the fishes in one of the designs and, in the other, my daughter has drawn in the pylons that she photographed in Goa. I think she has captured a great likeness of this clothes seller and a real feel for India.

The man who features in the prints is seen below with his friends. I think he would be delighted to see himself as a muse. Who knows he may appear on a t-shirt in the future! If we return to India in the winter we will definitely take him one of the prints.
