These Times and ‘How we Maintained Focus’

Continuing our weekend theme with our graduating designers.

“We are torn between nostalgia for the familiar and an urge for the foreign and strange. As often as not we are homesick for the places we have never known” – Carson McCullers

 

The Story of ‘REMINISCENT’ is exploring how my spirit and soul  drives me back to the place that I call home.

With collective research derived from the “Riviera of Devon” in Torbay, I portray an essence of ‘wander’; from the cliffs leading down to the sea, to the wildflowers that surround the landscape.

The focus on the wild botanicals is a metaphor – seen through their qualities to self-seed, and change in the seasons. My nostalgic emotions can be unpredictable, yet the desire to ‘spread my wings and fly’ has me in a constant battle between the ‘once was’ and the ‘what will be’.

It’s a feeling of escapism and tranquillity – visually translated into experimental textile prints.

The spirit of my project is adventurous and organic. I have learned to appreciate my home; happy place and discovered a need to share  with others around me.

There is no better time to spend at home than right now.
