‘Unwrapping the Line’ represented drawings by five creative practitioners; C. Hodes, F. Geesin, N. Hormazd, J. Radvan, J. Shellard who are practice led researchers at London College of Fashion, University of the Arts London.
What brings these researchers together is their use of themes pertinent to creative practice in a fashion design college, that is; cloth, textile, pattern blocks and the figure. In addition, each researcher in their own way has used the line as a key element, weaving the line through their imagery. The artworks on exhibition represent a range of processes available to the contemporary practitioner to make their line, from the pencil or thread, to film and digital technology.
‘Unwrapping the Line’ initiated and curated by Charlotte Hodes, Reader in FIne Art at London College of Fashion with the support of Professor Stephen Farthing Director for Drawing Out conference RMIT University and Stephen Gallagher, Curator, School of Art Galleries, RMIT.
