EXHIBITION : September 13, 2018 — September 15, 2018.
University of Bolton Pop-Up Showcase
Chloe Stokes’ designs are visually striking and contemporary, yet have a strong relationship to ancient culture, with Indian mandalas and Mexican iconography among her inspirations. Her techniques are similarly varied with beading, sequins, textured materials and mark making used. Her sources such as Mexican door frames create a sense of place and placelessness as the designs are simultaneously context bound and free of context, metamorphosing as they have into something undoubtedly original.
Their pop-up exhibition will be taking place between the 13th and 15th of September in space2 at Manchester Craft & Design Centre.
