Open Studio: Ptolemy Mann
september 3, 2021 15:00 - 16:30
During her residency at the Danish Art Workshops she is creating her largest hand dyed and woven artwork to date. Made up of 10 stretched woven panels the final artwork will be 6 x 2.2m. At the same time she creates a series of gestural paintings on canvas and paper exploring Nordic light. She calls her project The Blue Hour.
Ptolemy Mann has been creating art works from her studio in Britain since 1997. She graduated with a BA in textile design from Central Saint Martins in 1995, and then went in to complete an MA in constructed textiles at the Royal College of Art, both in London, U.K.
Ptolemy Mann creates architectural and chromatic wall based artworks for private, public and corporate clients using her signature hand dyed and woven technique. She has worked as a commercial textile designer producing a range of furnishing fabrics, cushions, bed linen and throws with various brands and retailers. She has her own Rug design and making company called GELIM (gelim.co).
In 2005 Ptolemy launched an architectural colour consulting service. Her unique approach to hand dyeing and weaving in a dynamic modern context brings her craft into the 21st century.
A modern-day Bauhaus philosophy of product and art making combined with intelligent colour theory underpins all of her work both creative and commercial. In the last 3 years she has begun a painting practice and is currently exploring the relationship between pigment and cloth.
On Sept. 3, 2021 at 3pm Ptolemy Mann opens up her studio at the Danish Art Workshops to show the work she has developed and produced in the Textile Lab. On this event she will talk about her unique working processes with textile and colour.
