Alice Pattullo: Of House and Home

YSP Centre

17 Jun–17 Sep 2017

‘A charming show of screen-prints’

Elle Decoration

Alice Pattullo takes inspiration from house and home in her most ambitious project to date. The exibition includes 60 new screen-printed editions, referencing Pattullo’s fascination with superstitions and folklore.

Transporting you into a forgotten era, Of House and Home takes visitors on a journey through a Victorian household from garden to parlour, culminating with the heart of the home – a recreation of a traditional fireplace and mantelpiece. Informed by a love of historical research and the discovery of curious superstitions and rhymes surrounding the domestic every day, Pattullo’s new works introduce the modern day house dweller to parlour pastimes, homemade plant remedies, kitchen folklore and protective talismans.

The Household Lore series, a collection of black and white screen-prints, imparts worldly wisdom and old wives’ tales including Elderflower and Hawthorn which claims ‘hawthorn bloom and elderflowers fill the house with evil powers’ and Jug which states that ‘it is bad luck to drink straight from a jug’. The Parlour Pastimes series explores crafts traditionally practiced by Victorian women in the parlour, from shell work to feather work and letter writing to embroidery.

House Quilt, the largest work in the show made up of 100 screen-printed ‘patchwork’ blocks, references traditional American schoolhouse quilts and pays homage to the patchwork quilts made and collected by the artist’s mother when she was growing up. Pattullo’s personal interest in pattern, decoration and detail is evident within her work, which celebrates the beauty of everyday objects.

All works in Of House and Home are available to buy, along with a limited edition screen-print which is exclusive to and inspired by YSP. The artist has also created an exclusive range of homeware for YSP Shop including an eggcup, biscuit tin and tray.
