Pink and Gold, After Anni Albers is part of Dovecot Patterns, a selection of tapestries created by Dovecot's weavers which evokes a cultural conversation through pattern that reaches back thousands of years. Weaver Ben Hymers took the work of artist and printmaker Anni Albers as the inspiration for this tapestry.
Albers studied at the radical Bauhaus art school in Germany where she forged her artistic language of combining traditional weaving techniques and modern art. Echoing the linear compositions of Albers’ work, Hymers adopted a subtle yet striking colour palette and textural techniques such as slits to interpret Albers’ patterns into a contemporary tapestry.
This tapestry is currently available for sale at £2,000 inclusive of VAT. All funds raised from sales support the work of Dovecot Studios and the tapestry apprenticeship scheme.
