Abstract

A one-person exhibition of paintings at the Lace Mills of Morton Young and Borland (MYB). The aim of the research was to reflect through painting and drawing processes pictorial aspects of lace design. The company was founded in 1900 in the Irvine Valley of Ayrshire, Scotland. In 1913 MYB Textiles invested in Nottingham lace Looms. MYB Textiles is now the only producer in the world manufacturing patterned lace with original Nottingham Lace Looms. This manufacturing process is extremely labor intensive. The methods employed by Kathleen through painting and drawing aim to mimic the structure of the lace. This group of paintings was achieved and developed in terms of enlarging the original lace structure and painting this on an architectural scale. The rationale for investigating the painting process in this context is to construct a pictorial handmade series of painted pattern formations. To accompany the exhibition Kathleen has also been working with Emma Dick to record the painting process and the textile pattern in an artist’s book.
