Nunhead Open 9 Art Exhibition 2012

I will be showing My Mummy Superior Hollandais Cloth inspired print at Nunhead

Here is some more information about the work I am showing:
I was fascinated the fable of the nun who was beheaded on Nunhead Green in the reformation of the monasteries in the 16th century. Although there is no evidence to support the story of the beheaded nun the story is part of folklore.
The shop I was working with for Nunhead Arts Festval in 2009 sells Hollandais fabric, which is very popular in West Africa. The fabric designs on this cloth were often developed to focus on the visualisation of proverbs and folklore.
I designed my own Hollandais cloth pattern inspired the legend of the nun beheaded on the green.
