Play

I was inspired by the Memphis art movement’s bold use of colour and geometric shapes, and I wanted to capture the sense of fun synonymous with this style, so I developed an overarching theme focused on ‘play’ to influence the direction of this fashion focused project.

Using circular toys, household items and found objects I used these as the subject of my drawing investigation before creating 3d structures and surfaces that carried through to my technical exploration. This developed into constructed textiles combining knit, felt and wadding to create a more prominent 3d appearance.
