Tropical Popical X The National Gallery, 2019
When you're asked by the Irish boss lady herself Andrea Horan of Tropical Popical to design a piece of wearable art for her collaboration with the National Gallery of Ireland for REnailssance. We couldn't say no! We got the opportunity to put a Jill & Gill spin on an Irish hero, Countess Markievicz and it was such a fun project. We are known for the term 'boss lady' and Markievicz was the perfect fit for this stunning exhibition.
Markievicz was an infamous advocate for women and workers "Dress suitably in short skirts and sitting boots, leave your jewels and gold wands in the bank, and buy a revolver" This sweater is a limited edition run, uniquely illustrated and hand printed here in our studio in Dublin and is on sale in the National Gallery for the duration of the REnailssance exhibition, running from the 18th July - 12th Sept.
