Andrew Remington Bailey

Andrew Remington Bailey explores the potential of bringing print-based media out of the two dimensional realm by crafting a human-sized doll from silk-screened textiles. In reference to the intensive use of decoration found in ancient illuminated manuscripts, all of the fabrics composing the doll are bright and densely patterned. Uncanny and even a little Frankensteinian, this figurative installation places the artist as animist, constructing a crude and colourful effigy that is a personification of printmaking.
