When Jumbled reached out to me about their event, an exhibition of Annie Everingham’s work, let alone a collaboration, I was thrilled and seriously couldn’t wait to hear more.
Not only am I a HUGE fan of Annie’s artwork, when I heard about this exhibition and exclusive cushion collaboration I just had to share it with you! This is the first exhibition that Jumbled have hosted in their new space at THE SONIC ( how exciting ) and I am sure it won’t be the last!
Annie shares with me her inspiration for the exhibition; ” This body of work lay in a longing to revisit florals (a recurring motif and theme in much of my art and past textiles projects) and to combine the more traditional style of still life painting with my abstract work.."
Personally, I love the composition of her artworks, often featuring vases or little objects surrounded by beautiful florals … and the colours … don’t get me started, they’re divine! “Growing up my mum was always a collector of beautiful objects – china bowls, antiques and tapestries (and of course, fresh flowers), I think my love for creating a beautiful sense of ‘home’ and surrounding myself with beauty stems from that. In a sense it was an exploration of what it means and feels to be at home,” Annie shares.
Jumbled X Annie Everingham Cushion Collaboration
Part of this exhibition also sees a cushion collaboration ” this theme tied in nicely with the inclusion of the cushion pieces. It was honestly a really joyful series to work on, I surrounded myself with lots of flowers and let the works unfold very organically.” nine shares. Bravo Annie, I am in love with all the designs, they are just beautiful … and yes I am eyeing off at the moment.
The exhibition will run in store and online until April 15th, 2017 … and can be viewed and purchased here.
Congratulations on a wonderful exhibition launch Pip!
