For her latest installation illustrator ChrissieÂ Abbott utilises modern technology to create interactive interior landscapes.
The show features interactive artworks built around the concept of an infinity mirror; this simple process creates a curious psychedelic effect and can be simulated using video, projection or any light source.
Featuring a series of films projected and reflected to form a giant two story moving tapestry, this backdrop houses a series of video feedback and traditional infinity mirrors to present inward facing portals, filling theÂ spaceÂ with beautiful rippling illustrations.
JaguarShoes Collective have previously collaborated with Chrissie to create a variety of innovative products and external projects.
In both physical and digital media Chrissieâ€™s work is most often characterised by collaged imaginings, which, in vivid Technicolor, utilise pattern and found images to create a uniquely delicate and fragile aesthetic that often touches on themes of nature and humanism. Her work recalls cult psychedelic artists such as Roger Law and 70â€™s typographer Roger Dean, but still remains uniquely hers.Â
Chrissie Abbott first exhibited as part of JaguarShoes Collective in 2008 at the Old Shoreditch Station, since then she has achieved huge international acclaim, producing commercial work an array of clients including Virgin, Orange, MTV, Nike, Nylon, The Barbican and The New York Times as well for musical acts such as, Little Boots, Patrick Wolf, Witch and Silver Apples. Her distinctive style of work provoked a c-change in illustration and her style, now much emulated has become intrinsic to the fabric of modern day design.
As part of the exhibition we will be releasing a NEW LIMITED EDITION 12″ PLATE to accompany the bestselling ‘Cat’ Pint Mug.
