The Iris Collection
The collaborative studio Jill & Gill, made up of illustrator Jill Deering and printmaker Gillian Henderson, celebrate their first birthday in business together with launch of their first solo show dedicated to fashion icon Iris Apfel. The first exhibition for the duo, will see them design and create 25 unique screen printed artworks.
The prints, a portrait of Iris Apfel, will embodied her colourful style and sophistication and a playful sense of humour to match. Each one-off print was printed on 300gsm Arches cotton paper, with each layer of the image screen-printed in a multitude of finishes and hand embellishments, informed by her eclectic permutations of designer clothing and exotic accessories.
We closed the exhibition on April 2nd with a sold out show, delighted its only fitting that we ended the show with an Iris quote and one of our favorites,
'you don’t find out who you are unless you work at it' - Iris Apfel
We worked and we found out who Jill & Gill are, hopefully you have an idea now too. J & G x x
