“Simulacrum” Spring Summer ‘21-22

Simulacrum means “an image or representation of”.Classic silhouettes carry hand-painted images that are actually pockets and purses. So are these just images or have they got a purpose? The collection is a treatise on this idea of representation, layers and meaning.Created over the run of a year where the world seems to be suffering the impact of our societies on the environment and we’re faced with our vulnerability as humans.Extremism and the rise of far-right ideologies across our planet scratch at the veneer of civiliation. Or is it just the simulacrum of a civilised people?The colours are taken from nature and can be found in a clear spring-sky. Earthy beige and green as the fresh beginnings of the meteorological year.
