Photography and Printing – Patterns and Colours in Provence – Guest Blogger: Cathy Glover

February 7, 2018

Level 4 Experimental Research for Art and Advanced Design Open House / Exhibition Nov. 18, 2017 Class name: Coral

Over the past two years I have focused on textile surface design through block printing and digital photography.  As I have learned to digitally manipulate photographs together to create new patterns and designs,  I have built on the love I have of the colours and textures of Provence. My exploration of chintz and its emergence from a trade textile to the patterns we continue to see today, has helped me to appreciate the fluidity of design and the ways in which colour, line, pattern and textures can be incredibly complex within very limited constraints.  As someone who loves textiles it has been a wonderful journey that has lead to new collections of vintage fabrics, a ongoing appreciation of artists like Matisse, Monet and Van Gogh and the time to build a library of photographic images that will inspire my creative pursuits in the future.  I am thankful for the learning that has come from working with Gail and my fellow members of the Coral group as we have inspired one another.
