About Peta Jacobs:
Peta Jacobs is an artist whose practice is rooted in textiles but extends to incorporate a range of media and processes. She is currently embarking on a practice-led PhD with the University for the Creative Arts where she is using the concept of ‘the fold’ to research ways of visually expressing the ‘edge of becoming’. In particular, she is drawing on the theories of physicist, David Bohm, who used the notions of unfolding and enfolding to explain implicit and manifest aspects of reality.
Counterpoint – Design Meets Art: a Showcase of Textiles from Two Perspectives
The exhibition ‘Counterpoint – Design Meets Art: a showcase of textiles from two perspectives’, showcased work by textiles design studio Dash & Miller alongside artist and client Peta Jacobs; presenting two very different interpretations of textile practice.
The exhibition, held between the 13 and 17th January, incorporated hand-woven textile design samples designed for the catwalk alongside space-altering abstractions created using projections and beautifully printed abstract acrylic blocks, produced using our Direct to Media UV printing service.
“Peta Jacobs Jacobs’ uses of cloth, mirrors and digital technologies have a magical, alchemic resonance as they unfold and draw us into that borderline space between what we know and what we imagine”, Lesley Millar, Professor of textile Culture at The University of the Creative Arts, where Peta is currently embarking on a practise-led PHD.
