V IS FOR VORTICIST, MARMALADE SURPRISE, ANUBIS PARTY:
These knitted shawls aim to represent and replicate several textual and aesthetic aspects of the Modern and Postmodern movements in literature. Inspired by the style of the Futurists and Vorticists as well as the works of author Thomas Pynchon, this ekphrastic exercise aims to transform text into a much more tactile form. Each shawl either translates the visuals that define the movements or textual passages and descriptions into pattern, shape, and design.
Knitted shawls in wool and acrylic yarn
Longest wingspan is 78” / 198 cm
