Upon Layers, 2018. Acrylic on canvas - 1200 x 1200 mm

“I want to fall to sleep with you, 
and I could care less
whether it is in
layers upon layers
of clothing
or only our skin -
all I really want is to wake up
not knowing
where I end and you begin.”

- Beau Taplin, ‘A Goodnight’

it is about play

Kirsty Warman

I am going to declare, I cannot believe the time it takes to create.

It is about PLAY, experimenting and developing in creating designs that naturally belong on fabric. A practiced line, a surrealistic drawing, mark making, pattern or simple continuity - whichever - the design/ drawing needs to establish a connection to a tactile form. 

We went to town on the dog design - flipped, repeated and flipped again - over easy
