Hand Painted

‘Textile and surface pattern is applied to a three dimensional object via a method of manufacturing – so you could say it almost becomes as much about the solid object as it does the surface pattern. My first exhibition of hand painted artworks at the Afridi Gallery, London, gave me the chance to reverse this, and explore pattern within the confines of a dimensionally limited flat surface i.e. a picture. How much interest, I asked myself, can a good pattern hold for the viewer without it being attached to the solid object and the transformative alchemy of the manufacturing processes? Pattern, once in repeat, finds itself as well as loses itself……but what happens when you lift the motif out of context and lay it out in isolation?’
