Effect :Transform

These are pictures of my M.A. degree show at Bower Ashton,UWE.  I designed, printed and stitched all the items using a mixture of digital print and hand and digital embroidery, and silkscreen methods including, illuminated discharge  and devore printing.  The headboard was upholstered by Sofa Riot.

This was a project about Transformation , to showcase the various skills I had acquired during my MA.  I dressed up to a common household object elevating it into something more like a throne.  The colours were inspired by Asia, the motifs referenced symbols of my hopes, fears and dreams/ stylised images of bees, owls and peacocks.  I wanted the final result to give a sense of opulence and aspiration, comfort and inhibition as well as rhythm and texture.
