• Hunter watching the beach

Thompson, Milly, 2016, Art or design object, Hunter watching the beach

Abstract or Description:

Milly Thompson's commission from Artist Tea Towel Company.
The design originates from a painting made for the recent exhibition 'Cougar' at Westminster Waste gallery. Much of the work in the exhibition, including the image used in the tea towel, depict older women at leisure on exotic beaches, in a carefree, unselfconscious state of déshabillée. Through schematic compositions and saturated colours, the imagery reflects Milly’s interests in fashion and commodity, and the representation of women in art.
The use of the Artist Tea Towel Company logo as a watermark reveals the artist’s ideas about branding and image ownership. These two research streams will be carried forward into a solo exhibition in 2017, 'Merchandise' at the gallery Naming Rights gallery, London. The tea towel will be shown as part of the exhibition.
