For Collect art fair, running on Artsy.net until Wednesday 24 March, she is presenting a series of textile sculptures that riff on the extravagant tassel tie-backs that she was commissioned to make for the renovations of London’s Berkeley Hotel (completing this spring). The White Light collection comprises woven artworks with reclaimed silk fringing, and carved forms cast in aluminium, threaded with hand-spun ropes and silk.
While interior design commissions are now the bulk of her work – she is also creating woven privacy screens for all of the hotel’s suites – the art pieces challenge her practice. ‘You can only push commercial work so far, so I’m excited about the scale of the Collect commission and where I can take it,’ she adds.
Alongside the glittering names taking to Collect art fair’s digital stage is a range of debut acts from across the world. Throughout the fair (26 February – 24 March) we have been meeting the makers turning waste into wonders, giving traditional techniques fresh form and pushing 3D printing to new levels of refinement.
