Hand To Earth Preview

Fashion fuses with art as Matthew co-hosted the exhibition preview of Hand To Earth.
  
10th September 2013

Bled MillFashion fused with art last night as Matthew co-hosted the exhibition preview of Hand To Earth at London’s Scream Gallery – a two-person exhibition with work by artists Caroline Jane Harris and Shane McAdams. Both create images of landscapes and nature, themes which resonate with Matthew’s own designs. But it is their unusual mediums which set their work apart: paper, ball-point pen inks and resin are employed to unique effect.

Harris’ intricate, delicate studies in paper-cutting capture nature and contrast against the hyper-colour of McAdams’ surreal landscapes.

Matthew quickly found a favourite in Shane’s Bled Mill work (right):
“I love Shane’s work but this piece is my personal favourite. I love the softly painted idylic landscape and how it contrasts with the glossy refections in the rainbow pond. In the flesh its really mesmerising.”

Meanwhile, the MW team had a chance to revisit the spring/summer 2013 prints on which Matthew collaborated with Shane. From the hot and cool colour contrast of the Weeping Blossom to the spectrum of colour breaking on the Sunburst Ink, here are some of our favourites below…
