SoCo Artists present new experimental work based on the 1920's Glasshouse in Alexandra Park. Kathleen Mullaniff, Senior Lecturer BA Fine Art, is showing her painting ‘Blue Plate’ which is inspired by the floral pattern of a piece of Chantilly Lace. Kathleen writes,

'Lace is a group of paintings derived from the structure and pattern of three samples of Chantilly Lace. The samples form part of a gift given to me by a family member, the box of textile samples dates from a collection from 1922. I have been re-appraising the structure and history of lace over the last 15 years; this has been in order to inform an ongoing concern with floral imagery and decorative structure that is inherent in pattern and ornament.

For this new project I have used the lace samples to transform the minute detail of the lace structure into large architectural painting format. In this pictorial context the intimate encounter with the lace is made public and the inherent geometric and organic floral motifs are investigated. During the painting process the motifs are repeated in sequence or over layed on the surface. Here composition, rhythm, pattern and tone are explored'.
