Patterns in Art is coming out soon!

The long wait is (almost) over, Patterns in Art is coming out soon! In November, Abbeville Press will publish our book in the US.

We have spent over a year observing paintings from four centuries of art history, searching for apparently secondary details – such as tiles, fabrics, tablecloths, and other ornaments. We have extracted these decorative elements, assembled them in new forms, and then used them as narrative cues to tell forgotten stories about people, their societies, and their costumes.

After running up against deadlines, it’s surreal to realise that this is really happening.

We are honoured and so grateful for the great reviews received from some of the most influential personalities in the art and design fields. Louise Fili, designer and author; Max Hollein, Director of The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York; and Patricia Urquiola, architect and designer.patterninart_cover.jpg
