Jennifer Rose Norris’s Textile Designs take inspiration from bone formations combined with deconstructed flower buds. The process uses stitching, fabric manipulation and a range of cutting techniques to transform long flat pieces of material into structural forms.
Her work reflects the qualities that are represented in today’s urban landscapes, through the friction of architectural surroundings and nature’s constant presence. She therefore chooses a range of natural and synthetic fabrics to work with, which allows her work to demonstrate the contrast found between the materials used as harsh and angular in appearance while remaining soft and tactile in texture.
The designs reflect how textiles can be used sculpturally with a space and also as an extension of the body as a fashion piece or adornment.
Jennifer Rose Norris is a Textile Designer and a recent graduate from the Chelsea College of Art and Design. She is currently exhibiting at the Foundry Gallery, Chelsea. She lives and works in London.
