TEXTILE PRACTICES

CHARLOTTE VENN

‘Divine Feminine’ is a collection of printed textiles celebrating the strength and beauty of the female form.

In art history, painting ‘the female nude’ has been a primarily male dominated past time. As highlighted by anonymous activists ‘The Guerrilla Girls’: “Less than 5% of the artists in the modern art section of the Met are women, but 85% of the nudes are female”.

This collection aims to regain the female nude back to the female artist: liberating our ‘imperfect’ bodies through textile design. ‘Divine Feminine’ explores abstract painting techniques to deliver bold and expressive prints that reflects ‘modern femininity’ and the glorious female nude.
