Rubber bands twist and stretch through the air, creating loose floral shapes and an energetic all-over pattern. Each rubber band was manipulated into a different shape, depicted as a photorealist object in gouache paintings with the addition of bright dressmaker’s pins for a pop of colour.
“This trompe-l’oeil design, hand-painted from a configuration of elastic bands on a pin board, gives the impression of flexing and stretching rubber bands in mid-air. The beautiful glass-headed pins give a pop of highlight colour.” – Shona Heath
SS21 Hooligan's Shampoo
Visionary set designer Shona Heath brings her fantastical touch to Liberty print in a unique collaboration created for Liberty Fabrics Design Series. Inspired by Philip Ridley's 1996 children's book The Hooligan's Shampoo, Heath constructed miniature sculptures in her studio from from everyday cornershop objects -- off kilter scenes of rubber-band bows, flowers made from washing up sponges, and discarded banana skins were painted into beautiful artworks by the Liberty Fabrics team, appearing here in a parade of vibrant colours and textures.
