Description:

Original stitched portrait collage, fixating on the eye area of the human portrait; transposed onto luxury Silk Satin. This design was originally one facial portrait, which the artist has designed a repeat pattern from. There is another similar piece to this one, named ‘The Extra Big Lashes Silk Square’…which one will you choose? It simply depends how you like to wear your lashes.

Ailish uses a family run firm to print her works onto silk; once the silk is returned, she hand cuts and rolls the edges of each item, so it has her touch. She is happy to answer questions about her items and welcomes contact.

Each square is designed to be worn as a scarf, wrap, hairpiece….or if you cant bear to wear…this piece could become a framed piece of art. What will yours become? This is truly wearable art.

Story:

This piece of the artist’s work, quietly questions the impact events experienced have on our ongoing narrative line. Strong memories built in childhood may only come to light decades later, where they can take on new meaning and finally be understood. Due to the artists localised interest in the portrayal of mending, in this portrait there is an underlying vie for, specifically repair within the humanistic emotional context. When married together, this is transposed via the techniques and materials employed. Irish linen as a ‘canvas’ and foundation to work upon, has been sourced and used to give a nod to her heritage, whilst etching techniques and watercolours mixed with the tactile are reminiscent of her lost grandmothers links with the Fine Arts. Using familial ideography juxtaposed with these and other treasured materials; a cross-discipline approach is employed. The artist here vocalises her most personal question to date, how to ‘mend the maker’. It is her belief that across creative disciplines, there can be a form of restoration for the author of works, brought about via the act of making, not the outcome itself.

Once the original piece is finalised, digital techniques are used to transpose the image onto silk.

Ailish is a practicing artist who has had two solo exhibitions to date, one in London and another in the North East of England. Printed Textiles is Ailish’s main focus. Using her original works, she develops them into digital files. A British based fabric printing company is then assigned to print the designs on her favoured cloth. She uses this digitally printed material to create Scarves, Pocket Squares, wall mountable art and jewellery. As a practitioner she sees this as a crucial move forward; “one off” art can now be available for a wider audience to view and collect. Coupled with this, the fabric she prints serves as a durable catalogue of her design highlights.
