Taking inspiration from a tapestry by Alfred Priest titled Verdure Piece 1938, British artist Liz Rideal worked with Dovecot Studios to create a contemporary tapestry design. The work references the tradition of depicting pastoral scenes in tapestry, re-imagined through a contemporary lens.
Rideal is an artist and writer who works across a variety of media including textiles, printmaking, and photography. She is well known for her early fine art photography made using a photo-booth, which lends to the grid-like approach she takes to design. The boxed composition of Verdure is typical of Rideal’s style, as is the abstract quality of the design. The monochromatic palette of the work pierced with blue borders adds to the striking, bold design.
