Felt Mistress Exhibition
October 3, 2017
Character designer Felt Mistress has an exhibition commissioned by The Lakes International Comic Art Festival to celebrate the life and creativity of Tove Jansson with the support of the Finnish Institute and the blessing of the Jansson family. The exhibition is in the Wildman Gallery in Kendal until the 4th of November and will be touring both in the U.K. and abroad including Helsinki and Japan (dates TBC)
Commissioned by LICAF to celebrate the work of Tove Jansson, this spellbinding multimedia exhibition by super-talented artists Jonathan Edwards and Louise Evans (Felt Mistress) creates a group of fantasy islands (archipelago) and creatures.
Each island and its inhabitants depends on the others e.g. the music created by the inhabitants of one island inspires the work created by the inhabitants on another.
Scenes from each island are depicted in a series of paintings and drawings while the islanders themselves are fully realised as 3D soft sculptures.
