Civilised human beings wear clothes; therefore there can be no portraiture, no mythological or historical story telling without representations of folded textiles. But though it may account for the origins, mere tailoring can never explain the luxuriant development of drapery as a major theme of all the plastic arts.’ (Huxley, 1954)

This is ongoing research to foreground drapery, in existing art, with a series of altered books, photographs and other images which was used as the basis for the work produced during the residency at University of Chester.
