Baby Purple Lips by Paris Essex, Blanket or Throw

$980Asking Price

About

This handmade piece of textile art by the knit-ware specialists of Paris Essex can be used as a blanket or throw. Founded by Carolyn Clewer and Tiphaine de Lussy, Paris Essex is the result of years of collaboration between the two knitwear and textiles specialists, which began over 20 years ago at the Royal College of Art. The latest chapter of this adventure is the creation of narratives in a space where distinctions between craft, design, high art and low culture are blurred. A Paris Essex "Crazy Blanket" represents a creative dialogue between Clewer and de Lussy; the two take it in turns to play with crochet and knit, using luxurious blends of mohair, wool and super-synthetics. Each blanket is individually created by the duo, taking on its own personality as it grows organically and fluidly. The process is more akin to collage or patchwork than meticulously planned design. With names such as "Heebie Jeebie", "Zig Zag Bunny" and "Miss Harlow" each blanket tells its own story, mixing in patterns, shapes and characters.

About The Maker

Emma Scully Gallery promotes applied arts through a curated exhibition program. Curated context is the origin of meaning of our programming. Conceptual interpretation is at the heart of our contextualization. Context is never neutral. The belief that the white box is a neutral space supports a particular type of art, one situated in a narrative of art as individual expression. Applied arts are social and cultural expression. Applied art objects are not intended for white box spaces, by imposing ‘neutral’ presentation on these objects you present fragments. We look to make contextualization a central part of value arguing rich site-specific installation increases the interest and importance of functional art. Collected works available for viewing by appointment only at a DTLA Arts District loft.
