Autumn Collection

Personal work
By Merely Susan

Autumn is a collection of linen textiles that was created in my studio in the second half of 2021. The aim of the design process was to create patterns that would work well for digital printing on natural fabrics, in order to sew unique home textiles, i.e. decorative pillows, from them.

The collection is a combination of three techniques – watercolor paints, gouache and ink, thanks to which four pattern designs were created: Climbing Plants, Field flowers, Flowers and Leaves. The first pattern with a very organic composition of climbing flowers was painted with watercolors.

The second is an attempt to work with a new technique – ink. The graphic representation of the contours of the wildflowers allowed me to create organic lines and create a very personal pattern design where every move of my hand is visible. The last two, very delicate and, in my opinion, classic patterns were painted with gouache.

I like when the pattern designs do not overwhelm and dominate, especially if they are intended for interior decoration items, so I tried to create harmonious compositions from motifs inspired by nature. Due to the careful design process, beautiful stories could be woven into the subtle structures of the patterns.

On the one hand, these stories are hidden in carefully painted motifs and thoughtful compositions, and on the other, they come directly from my studio – they are the result of a careful process and imperfections resulting from working with your own hands.

Despite the fact that beautiful patterns are just an addition, I believe that they can enrich the product with a deeper narrative and make it an indispensable element of our everyday life. The stories introduced into the interior can help to create a soothing and calming atmosphere in the home space.
