Fashion, Art and Design: Paolozzi Collages.


Ehm...Eduardo Paolozzi is not a new talented designer, as you could have guessed by the opening picture but a Scottish artist whose trademark is the art of collage in many forms. Obviously I was at my ease when I saw his collage skills applied to textiles and to the dress above but in general, I really appreciated  his whole talent, in the mixing and matching images from different media, creating prints, sculptures, ceramics and textiles.

As with the Lyons Lithographs Exhibition in Eastbourne, my fascination for the Eduardo Paolozzi: Collaging Culture at the Pallant House Gallery in Chichester, is in the mixture of art/design/popular culture that can be found in his work. Particularly us, fashionistas, are quite used to be exposed to different, simultaneous ideas and inspiration being collaged together by designers in their collection and fashion shows, not to mention fashion editorials and fashion films, as well as the ever changing prints of designers like Mary Katrantzou, Michael Van Der Ham or the more obviously pop inspired by House of Holland.
Below some of my favourite pieces in the exhibition.

Ehm...Eduardo Paolozzi non e' un giovane nuovo designer di talento, come si potrebbe immaginare dall'immagine di apertura ma un artista scozzese o; cui segno distintivo e' l'arte del collage in molte forme. Ovviamente sono stato a mio agio non appena ho visto la sua maestria nel collage applicata ai tessuti ed all'abito qui sopra ed in genrale ho aprezzato moltissimo il suo talento nel mesolare ed accostare immagini da media differenti per crearne stampe, sculture, ceramiche e tessuti.

Come per la mostra delle Litografie di Lyons ad Eastbourne , il fascino della mostra Eduardo Paolozzi: Collaging Culture alla Pallant House di Chichester, risiede nella commistione di arte/design/cultura pop delle sue opere. In particolare njoi, fashionisti, siamo abituati ad essere esposti a diverse idee ed ispirazioni espresse simultaneamente dagli stilisti nelle loro collezioni e durante le sfilate, senza tralasciare gli editoriali di moda, nonche' le stampe di designer come Mary Katrantzou, Michael Van Der Ham e quelle piu' ovviamente pop di House of Holland.
