Orwell and Goode

At the Liverpool show I also saw the work of Orwell and Goode who are two textile artists who specialize in printed textiles. They meet when Orwell taught Goode how to silk screen print and then they decided to work together and create their own collection of works. They hand print everything and stitch to create teatowels, aprons, cushions, lampshades, wallpaper, bags and cards, printing on a mixture of materials such as fabrics, paper, card and linen.
Alto of their work is based on animals and wildlife, especially deer, birds and trees. Mixing together line drawings and silhouettes of deer, trees and birds and using different layers of colour to create more depth and interest in each piece.

I like how you can tell each piece is their work because it has the same theme of deer and wildlife running through-out the collection linking each piece together.
