Paul McDevitt ‘Modern Furnishings’ at SMAC, Berlin, Germany
8 December 2017
'Modern Furnishings' focuses on two large repeat patterns, silkscreened onto raw cotton. The imagery is sourced from the artist's studio and immediate surroundings, including a pad of note paper, and bike locks abandoned on a lamppost outside. Digitally these designs could be expanded immeasurably, whereas McDevitt is more interested in exploring what it's like to make something by hand. In doing so the works take on their own character and idiosyncrasies.
