This week my imagery was printed onto fabric which is something I’ve never done before and a very exciting part of this project for me!
‘The Color Purple’ is an epistolary novel, made up of letters in communication between protagonist Celie and eventually her sister Nettie. Individually, the letters don’t bear much meaning but when brought together in the form of the whole novel they have meaning. With the symbols I created, these don’t have much meaning separately in a similar sense but when bought together, links can be made and a narrative can be seen. At this stage, the imagery I printed onto the fabric can still be refined but I think this is a good start which I am happy with.
