OUR LATEST NEWS
Bankside Hotel x Contemporary Collective are thrilled to welcome contemporary painter and textile artist Kelly Jenkins to the Makers’ Studio as their next Artist in Residence. During her 4 week residency, Kelly will create a range of free-hand machine embroidered paintings inspired by data collected from the environment around the Bankside on the Thames, the people that inhabit the area, and a few famous individuals who have fueled her previous body of work created through the duration of the pandemic.
Whilst in the studio, Kelly’s aim is to push her embroidery skills, techies and ideas even further, through design development, scale and incorporating new digital embroidery aesthetics and terminology. Producing a range of plein air sketches of the surrounding area on the Southbank, Kelly aims to develop these sketches into embroidered paintings, as well as create 2 free-hand machine embroidered data portraits, employing the personal data usage to translate and create an interpretation of their online existing. Additionally, Kelly plans to develop and scale up 3 plein air paintings onto canvas and use online data to create 3 free-hand machine embroidered datascapes.
