Les Fleurs

In this ongoing project Darren aims to capture the rich colouring of his collection of French seed pack labels from the 1920’s using appliqué and free embroidery. His found palette of fabric is hand cut, layered and sewn to create the images. He is particularly interested in contrasting the surface qualities of the fabrics and the way in which they change when viewed from different angles. The work is deliberately small in scale to reference the size of the seed pack labels.
