A few months ago, I was part of an exhibition on an island in Greece. During a discussion with fellow artists, one said I shouldn’t mix my art with my interior designs.
I kind of know where they are coming from, but if it looks good printed onto fabric or home accessories then go for it. Everything has a link creatively, be it style or subject matter.
Anyway I used a photograph (which goes with one of my short films Sea Change) which I got printed onto a bowl, the round microscope shape had me intrigued with how it would look. And guess what it works!
