Tom Phelan

When asked to participate in this exhibition I immediately knew what floor, room and building to head for - the Eileen Grey permanent collection. I have a huge genuine passion for her works, especially the rugs and lacquered screens. Designs from the early 20s, simple and crisp, bold blocks of colour or monochrome with sharp simple lines (such as the Roquebrune Rug), including the fantastic block screens. The black lacquered screens with their simple white intersecting lines and curves relate directly to the three images I have created for this show. I felt the line drawing series which I have been working on would be sympathetic to her own sense of design, and therefore compatible. They transfer well into rug designs, so I printed them directly from the inked woodblock onto felt. I wished to create the same feeling of weight and mass a rug has, very different from even the heaviest quality printing paper.
