Textile, from the Tell collection, 2015
For Vlisco’s 2015 Pop-Art themed Tell collection, graphic designer Michiele Shuurman paid homage to Roy Lichtenstein’s 1963 painting Magnifying Glass, which features the artist’s trademark raster points in two scales, in black and white. In Schuurman’s colorful version the raster points are part of a meta-pattern of dots, and magnified through trompe l’oeil glass marbles each casting a shadow in halftone raster, creating a multi-valent commentary on pattern and process.
