Ptolemy Mann digital print displayed at Gloucester Cathedral

This is a vibrant exhibition currently showing at Gloucester Cathedral, England until the end of the year. The show features two textile artists/designers concerned with colour and creating textiles that interact with architecture. The cathedral is a stunning location to exhibit. Ptolemy Mann‘s beautiful digital prints are hung the length of the pillars – the scale reminds me of medieval tapestries that you often see in churches, the jewel-like colours echo the dazzling colours of the stained glass windows around.

Anna Glasbrook‘s pieces are no less impactful. Stunning day-glo ribbons woven through mesh and perspex appear to twirl and twist in mid-air. Beautiful back-lit fabrics glow in a myriad of colours. All contrasting brilliantly with the grey stone architecture that they are placed within.
