Description:

A moment in time, when we don’t want to move on. We have all had one.

The artist here used traditional etching techniques in a Printing Studio to create a copper plate print, based on her own drawings. This was then transposed digitally onto silk to create this design. It is available as a singular one off pattern and a repeat.

At times in our lives, we all may want shelter and a warm embrace – can you see yourself within this iconic scene?

The artist 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.

Ailish is happy to answer questions about her items and welcomes contact.

The 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.

Dimensions 60 × 60 cm

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, forming the wearable art you can now observe.

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.
