The 21st century has brought a change to Textile art where photography is breaking a new ground in a variety of ways to show, illustrate, experiment and manipulate. Textile Photography can challenge conventional ideas about the art form and confronting us with the unexpected.
Textile Photography can work as a visual inspiration source, work as a technique to show an outcome of surface, be an assortment of traditional and unconventional method within the artform; an exploration of visual sources to discover and showcase the potential for imagery, texture, structure, manipulation and where the creator has explored an alternative possibility within the subject to manipulate existing textile surfaces or to create new ones.
This exhibition will end Sunday the 9th of March at 5pm so come down and explore the subject of Textile Photography at Kalopsia Gallery today.
Don’t forget there is still time to see Kalopsia’s Textiles Photography exhibition and Illustration is on it’s way to!

The first of a series of cheeky little adverts I made for Cappuccino Ads. They put ads on eco friendly cups.
'The Engima of Man Ray' by Adam Robertson
- Man Ray was a textiles artist.
The Engima of Man Ray is a hommage to the artistic works of the most miss-defined Textiles creators of all time - Man Ray.
To see, L’Enigme d’Isidore Ducasse, as anything other than the work of a Textiles Creator is to deny origins of Man Ray’s artistic process.
This piece is constructed to reveal Man Ray for what he truly was, a Textiles Creator and celebrate his contribution to our field.

I made that!

Textile Photography will run from 22nd February to the 8th March in its Ocean Terminal location, open Monday – Saturday 10 - 6pm and Sunday 11 - 5pm.
Textiles Photography is on it’s way!
Matilda Dominique’s piece ‘1330 threads’ is a textile installation and a collective deconstruction of a weave. In early December 2013 the piece was initially showed as an interactive installation at a public library in central Stockholm, Sweden. During three days, people visiting the library became part of a reversed production process, as they were invited to take the weave apart, thread by thread. This collective deconstruction aims to open up for thoughts on the often hidden processes that lies behind the making of a textile. In january 2014, the idea is to let the deconstruction continue, in a different time and space. Visitors to the gallery are thus invited to become a part of the continuous process of the installation.
The woven piece is constructed with linen thread, hand-dyed in a weft ikat technique. The quality of the yarn, together with the dyeing technique and binding aims to create a three-dimensional pattern that makes the construction and process visible. Simultaneously, the pattern creates an optical illusion that may force the viewer to have a closer look.
We have one final open submission for The Kalopsia Gallery in Ocean Terminal ! This time we are looking for Textiles Illustration, so get your submissions in, this is your last chance to have your work exhibited in this unique space.
