Long Distance

by © Courtney Cerruti


Chapter two: “Portraits”

Long Distance is inspired by some of my favourite motifs and craft traditions across cultures. It brings together Japanese printmaking processes alongside  references to hand-painted French wallpaper and tiny delicate florals. Traditional elements are updated by a shift in scale and a contemporary colour palette. Adding figures to these motifs creates a conversation across time and place, rooting these prints in the present.

I love the variety of print in this  collection. Some feel bright and happy, like tiny celebrations on fabric, while others seem to whisper subtly to one another. Long Distance is life on fabric; it’s light and airy, dark and sophiscated, a collection of’ moments gathered  together over countries and lifetimes.
