Soft Folds – Hard Edges at Liverpool Academy of Arts


I can’t quite figure these out. Paintings, sculptures or soft-furnishings? They are very big and there’s been lots of  folding and stitching going on using various materials then covered in what looks like gloss paint. Jolly bright colours and certainly different. The show at the Academy ends today but then moves to CUC from 17th July.

‘Soft Folds Hard Edges’ New works by Geoff Parr
at Liverpool Academy of Arts
28 June – 9 July 2010

When you first encounter Geoff Parr’s works you see a structure which is a fusion between contemporary fashion design and painting.
