I have returned from spending the weekend visiting the Kaffe Fasset 50 years of colour exhibition in the Scottish city of Aberdeen. His first solo exhibition in Scotland.
I made it by the skin of my teeth, the final day of the exhibition.I had been excited since I heard of its imminent arrival but had had to wait till Saturday to experience for myself the glorious explosion of Fasset technicolour!!
I still adore his use of pattern, and opulent colour. As soon as I walked into the exhibition I was filled with Joy.... The joy of colour!
Each section was themed,
faces and animals
Abstract and geometric patterns in both knitted and quilted designs
fabulous florals.... and his trademark cabbages
the displays were mouthwatering
I adore this fruity chair covered in fruity needlpoint. The duck egg blue is so beautiful!
The quilts were amazing
This one I particulary loved.
Also on show were some of his wonderful paintings used to inspire his work.
I love this painting......
And this knitted hanging!
having studied Tapestry weaving at University the above tapestry really blew me away.
And finally these two little needlepont plates..... how adorable!!
If you want to find out more about Kaffe Fasset I bought a copy of his wonderful autobiography which is well worth delving into.
Linking up to paint party friday
