• Peter Blake: Target, Rainbow, Star, Heart

Target, Rainbow, Star, Heart was designed by British pop artist Sir Peter Blake and woven by Dovecot weavers to mark both Blake’s 80th birthday year and Dovecot’s centenary.

Featuring icons and imagery synonymous with Blake’s distinctive Pop Art style, Target, Rainbow, Star, Heart is a striking tapestry that demonstrates that artist’s hand and the weaver’s skill. Blake worked closely with the Studio to select colours that would suit the design, and while weaving the first edition of the work, Master Weaver Naomi Robertson developed an approach for the series using cotton in single colour blends to emulate the flat graphic style of Blake’s artwork – the simplicity of which is deceiving.

The technical challenge overcome by Dovecot weavers in attempting to weave precise lines and graduating curves in these tapestries is testament to their skill and ability to capture fine detail.

Framed whole tapestry series edition 2/12 is available to purchase. Separate 4 mounted tapestry series 6/12 is available.

Target, Rainbow, Star, Heart will be included in Dovecot’s curated selection of works for Collect 2021, international art fair for contemporary craft and design, online until 26 March.
