Weaving my own approximations of ‘spotted camlets’ while living in the pages of 18th century sample books.
dots in wool ~ blocks and dashes in wool ~ blocks and chevrons in silk with stripes ~ weaving two warps ~ pages from a Norwich worsted pattern book 1783-1787, from the Winterthur Library Digital Collection

Trying to understand printed patterns more, spent the day looking at 19th century roller printed cottons. Ended up painting a coffee cup.

Teaching myself to paint faux wood grain, which feels like the opposite of weaving.
Anne Low is based in Montréal, Canada. Her practice includes sculpture, installation, textiles and printmaking to investigate how particular expressive forms are able to unhinge themselves from historical contingency and speak to contemporary subjects such as the domestic, the decorative, utility and taste. Her work speaks to wider narratives around the impulse to individuate object and self and how the impulse to decorate is a desire that extends through history and is expressed onto the planes and surfaces of domestic interiors and objects.
