H O W cool are these?!
Anna Duthie graduated from Glasgow School of Art back in 2012 - the above work was done during that time. "Her work reflects and appreciation of pattern, surface, embellishment, contrasting textures, and color." - YEAH IT DOES! Im in love with how she puts the work together, cohesive black and white photos of women covered in colorful and eclectic patterns. I would S O wear some of these designs if given the chance! :) You know what they remind me of... The paper dolls I would play with as a girl. Anyone else remember those?
Anna went to the Royal College of Art for her masters in 2016. Her work changed from the collage aspect to physical design and garment making.
The work still has the beautiful delicate detail and the soft color palette. Which oh my goodness I can't get enough of it! She works with print and embroidery for fashion. "I create textiles that blur the boundaries between the two disciplines. I am interested in making fabrics that are not what they appear" I can so see that!
When I went to school I also tried blurring the lines between painting and fibers - still working on that :)
