City:

I am an Interdisciplinary artist and designer. My practice is conceptual and wide ranging, often responding to a site, a situation or a place. Research is central to my creative process and I work across, constructed and printed textiles, photography, typography and printmaking. My practice is not restricted by subject, style or process. My aim is to find appropriate ways to communicate  with an intended audience by providing unexpected and highly considered responses. It is my concern with surface both as a mode of communication and as a point of contact between people and their environment gives my practice cohesion. 

This work explores the idea of silence. It came about in response to ‘Heroines’, by Kate Zambreno. ( 5.00 - 14.44  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Al4SR4unHaI ) and is a response to the forgotten, erased and rewritten modernist woman writers. I am drawn to textiles because I believe they have, the capacity to invite a more intimate relationship with the viewer and encourage a sensory response. The work considers textiles as a salient/non-verbal mode of communication. I use the intrinsic qualities of materials and processes to evoke associations, emotions, convey meaning and to align myself within a history of woman’s labour.  Title : Silence   Media : Hair and felt   Dimensions in inches: 13.8 wide X 17.7  high unframed.

We are children playing adult, wandering through the fog, casting illusions of grandeur and promises of success beyond the periphery. Perhaps it is what goads us on, a flicker in the fade.  My name is Arnauld D'Angelo Sylvain, and I am a painter. This work is a collection of photographs I've t...
