Did you alternation as a designer

Post by jajskadu on Mon Nov 05, 2012 12:58 am

As my babe is advertent entering the NCSU School of Textiles, I acquisition myself apprehensive how one becomes a bolt designer. Again this morning, I ran beyond a painting by Kim Parker that fabricated me think, “this could be abundant bolt piece”. In researching further, I apparent that Parker is a bolt designer. Her paintings are getting fabricated into fabric, rugs,and abstract mural (use the seek button at the Rug Company to acquisition Parker’s work). Even added interesting, Parker’s painting and architecture was a late-blooming talent. Her amount is in music. From an account in the UK Guardian:

“Did you alternation as a designer? No, I accomplished as a flautist. It wasn’t until my backward 20s that I started to anticipate about a career in design. I’d accelerating with a BA in music in 1985, again in 1987 I took my aboriginal two painting classes – one in colour approach and one in oil painting. After a abrupt time teaching and arena music in Belgium, I switched to design. My aboriginal job was as a colourist in the appearance and bolt industry.

Where did you advance your aptitude for alive with colour and prints? By the time I was four, I was bearing actually hundreds of bookmarks with tiny floral and geometric patterns on them. I don’t apperceive area it came from, added than that my parents were accomplished artists and musicians, and actual aboriginal on they alien me to painters such as Vuillard, Bonnard and Matisse. I was in awe of these painters’ abilities to amalgamate densely busy patterns on space wall murals, rugs and upholstery in a allowance to the point area you couldn’t calmly analyze the figure. I anticipate my compassionate of the coaction amid colour and arrangement comes from my acquaintance with paintings, bolt designs and even music, back music involves an compassionate of accent and dissonance.”

“My accent and affection is alive with color. My patterns are densely populated. I would aspect this to my amaranthine affection for painting. It excites me if a chat begins with a individual motif, flower, square, or stem, and gradually transforms into a affectionate of symphonic experience. I never pre-plan annihilation I paint. It is the ‘unknown’, the accustomed analysis that inspires me, and keeps the action fresh, always. Perhaps this is what has kept my plan afar from added designs in the industry over the years. The unacademic quality, the aboveboard forms in their asymmetrical, and amoebic placements are like DNA – abnormally their own, unrepeatable. In the past, if asked by agents whom I had formed with for a abbreviate time, why I didn’t trace or abode my designs down aboriginal afore coast into the act of black and white wall murals¦ it was absolutely this —the ‘human element,’ about ‘imperfect’ in it’s final and alone execution, seemed to accumulate it at a safe and honest ambit from the cookie-cut industry accepted of ‘beauty’ and ‘perfection.’”
