Ten prominent fashion illustrators (all but one British and UK based - Tina Berning lives and works in Berlin) have joined creative forces to exhibit a powerful new collection of original works on paper at Magma in Covent Garden, London from Thursday 7th July until 8th August. Co-curators (and featured artists) Erin Petson and Lucy MacLeod, were inspired to organise the exhibition titled 'INSIDE OUT- Fashion dreams on paper', following a visit to the Hilma af Klint exhibition at The Serpentine Gallery in May. Now considered to be a pioneer of abstract art, the Swedish painter uses colourful, surreal symbols and natural forms to communicate her enigmatic ideas and predictions on a large scale. Blown away by the mystic beauty of the reclusive and until recently unknown female artist's work, Petson and MacLeod approached eight carefully selected commercial illustrators with the challenge of responding to Hilma af Klint's work by creating imagery that reflects the notion of the 'cosmic and spiritual'.
