Bespoke Atelier is a surface and textile design studio based in Glasgow, Scotland. They specialise in bespoke screen-printed and digital patterns for public art, interiors, fashion and theatre markets. They create designs to make an impact, but equally to complement and enhance the surfaces on which they appear.
My pieces explore ideas of the embedded object and memory. The found objects I use are metaphors for recovered memory – forms of association and representation. I see these materials as artefacts which have a powerful relationship with the environment I have taken them from. I use objects which pull away from their environments acting as signifiers of residual memory.
