My SS16 collection incorporates a collaboration with the late American artist BRYAN NASH GILL. I was mesmerised by his WOODCUT prints when I first came across one of his books in Broadway Market in London Fields. The images really stuck in my head so I decided to get in touch via his website – it was then that I found out that Bryan had sadly passed away a few years previously. Working with his team I have reworked several of his prints playing with scale and colour to create this new season of digital print. All the prints are printed onto 100% silk and are printed in Nottingham, UK.
“What is the soul of a tree? The question is subjective, the answer in the eye of the beholder. From the tree’s perspective, it might be the sum of the seasons of its life. The droughts suffered, the sunshine savored. But the tree cannot bear witness to its own greatness. It cannot see its own deep roots, or the influence of its own spreading branches. It is up to the observer to give meaning to the tree’s existence.”
This collection is dedicated to the memory of Bryan Nash Gill.
