  • Pink and Gold, After Anni Albers, 2019

Pink and Gold, After Anni Albers, 2019 is part of Dovecot Patterns, a selection of tapestries created by Dovecot 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.

Pink and Gold, After Anni Albers will be included in Dovecot’s curated selection of works for Collect 2021, international art fair for contemporary craft and design. Browse Dovecot’s online exhibition via Collect partner Artsy from 26 February 2021
