Homage to Gabo, limited edition woodcut prints by Hormazd Narielwalla

Homage to Gabo, limited edition woodcut prints by Hormazd Narielwalla

Set of six woodcut prints on Somerset paper with hand torn edges presented in a handmade, embossed cloth portfolio box

Limited edition of 15 signed and numbered by the artist

Inspired by the work of Russian avant garde sculptor Naum Gabo, these limited edition woodblock prints by Hormazd Narielwalla are intended as flat constructivist drafts which could be turned into 3D objects – clothes. Exploring the interface between 2D and 3D, these patterns capture the feeling of Gabo's own energy filled woodcut prints, which the artist had encountered at Tate St.Ives.

Narielwalla was amazed by Gabo's use of mundane household items like door knobs and bed posts to create such beautiful prints. Wanting to mirror this sense of transformation, Narielwalla sourced sewing patterns from a tailoring book enlarged their scale. By taking the patterns out of their original context, he has manipulated them in a way that offers multiple readings. They stop being tailor's patterns, and become spatial compositions that play with the relationship between negative and positive.
