One man show at Rochester Art Gallery.
In the Kaleidoscope series, Neil Bottle explores the relationship between digital textile printing and craft printing techniques and how these seemingly opposing practices can coexist. A combination of the latest cutting-edge digital print techniques such as dye sublimation combined with craft traditions such as screen printing, discharge printing, pleating and shibori have been developed in the work.
The Kaleidoscope series of wallhangings is printed in rich shades of scarlet, flame, teal and gold. These designs are in a sense autobiographical, representing an eclectic mixture of references, journeys and memories. A key focus in the work is to create a sense of depth and space on flat printed cloth, pushing the limitations of digital textile printing.
