Award winning British Artist Gemma Land has been working on her long awaited second collection of photographic print silk scarves. ‘Strawberry Hill’, is a series of monochrome and colour prints of London’s much-loved Strawberry Hill House, printed and hand finished in the UK. She has also been awarded the Wolf & Badger Graduate Design Award and also shortlisted for the Fashioning the Future Award this year.
Her first collection ‘Bourgeois Utopias’ launched by the Creative Archives at London and Paris fashion week, featured beautiful black and white images of English suburban houses. They were a great success being published in Russian Vogue, Dazed Digital, AnOther and the Huffington Post. They have been selling out on thecorner.com and Luisa Via Roma.
Land’s background is in Fine Art Photography graduating from the much-acclaimed MA at London College of Communication. Her style is unique, fusing her photographic art with the function of scarves; she likes to play with architecture and often uses symmetry to create impossible structures and hallucinogenic patterns. Her aesthetic lies between the romantic and the gothic, creating beautiful and yet often somewhat unsettling imagery.
