Ahead of his forthcoming exhibition at Rochester Art Gallery, acclaimed digital textile artist Neil Bottle will be leading a free online talk and Q&A for Electric Medway.
All That Remains – Thirty Years in the Making explores family stories, nostalgia and memories using exquisitely layered cutting edge digital design and precious fragments of the artist’s archive of family photographs. The work aims to invite curiosity and discussion about the way we recall past memory, interact with digitally created images and consider the value of the physical artefact in a virtual world.
“As a digital settler, born in the late 1960s and with three decades of analogue printed textiles experience, my approach to the use of Computer Aided Design is very different to a generation of younger digital native designers, who have never experienced a pre-digital existence. My lifelong passion for pattern and cloth combined with three decades of working as a print designer have equipped me with an analogue tool kit, with which I explore the world of digital design.”
The exhibition opens on 8 October and runs until early 2022 at Rochester Art Gallery.
