Scream and British fashion designer Matthew Williamson are presenting a two-person exhibition Hand to Earth featuring Caroline Jane Harris (UK) and Shane McAdams (USA). Both artists experiment with unusual mediums – paper, ball-point pen ink, resin – taking nature and landscapes as a starting point but with very different results.
Shortlisted for the Aesthetica Art Prize 2012, Caroline Jane Harris explores the complexity of nature by creating intricate symmetrical patterns through a labour-intensive paper-cutting technique. In contrast, Brooklyn-based painter Shane McAdams creates his landscapes using layers of ball-point pen ink, oil and resin. Matthew Williamson was first inspired by McAdams’ work for his 2013 Summer Collection. And for his subsequent autumn collection Williamson presents a more organic, fractal pattern, which echoes Harris’s layered paper pieces.
