Press Release

Ornamental brought together the work of six female artists working around themes of decoration, pattern and repetition. The exhibition aimed to challenge traditional perceptions of the decorative in a fine art context and open up a wider discourse about gender, politics and the validity of decoration in the broader schema of contemporary art today. The artists’ works were not defined or constrained within traditional media and included diverse processes such as stitching, sewing, embroidery, cutting, collage, folding and draping.
