A textile of two cities
Course leader's work shown in Cologne and Paris at same time
Date: 28 January 2013
Work by Gina Pierce, course leader for BA (Hons) Textile Design at The Cass, is being exhibited simultaneously in Cologne and Paris. Her wallpaper and cushion designs are showing at both imm (International Furnishing Show) in Cologne, and Maison&Objet, Paris, on the British European Design Group showcase stands.
Gina Pierce uses digital technology along side traditional hand print techniques to produce fabrics, wallpaper and products.
Gina's designs are inspired by locations, and their associated landscapes, people and memories. Images evoke events and cultures which have passed into history, are maybe almost forgotten, and which are recreated in print, to give a glimpse into the past. The current collection is inspired by the East End of London, particularly the areas of Spitalfields and Whitechapel.
