The Jacovitti Paisley
Book of 49 paintings on paper
Opens to 152.4 x 244cm
2020



This is my largest book of paintings to date and took over a year to produce.
Each double-page features a quotation from an historical Paisley Pattern design grafted together with a quotation from the Italian illustrator Benito Jacovitti's Kama Sutra.
If the Paisley Pattern is a fertility symbol then this book seeks to re-engineer the pattern to make it more fecund.
