Textile Impressions
Project info

The works in the series Textile Impressions were produced in collaboration with textile artist Holly James. The intent was to explore the texture of James’ weavings through a process that would present them to the viewer in a new way – free from the expectations many people have of textiles as being fluffy, tactile domestic objects. Here, a sample of one of James’ woven woollen designs was laid out onto photographic paper and exposed to light for varying amounts of time, highlighting the three dimensional qualities and almost architectural structure of the piece.
