Anna Maria Horner brings a collection of her favourite artists together in a new collaboration called “Anna Maria’s Conservatory.” Anna Maria’s Conservatory is a gathering of beautiful art from uniquely talented artists. This art is then translated onto textiles so that you can create something even more beautiful than ever imagined. Vestige is the first collection in the “Conservatory” by Canadian designer Bookhou. She brings her signature style to the quilting industry for the fist time.
Arounna Khounnoraj, the creative energy behind Bookhou, was born in Laos and raised in Canada from the age of four by a mother who created handmade items most of their life. Arounna therefore naturally entered art studies and has explored pattern and image in textiles and sculpture ever since. She and her husband John Booth, also an artist, founded Bookhou in 2002 in Toronto to showcase their collaborative work. They create hand-screened, printed works that land in fashionable accessories and home goods. Their work is as earthy and warm as it is provoking and modern.
The Vestige Collection refers to the fragments, motifs and design elements gathered from past drawings and designs that the designers have collaged and overlayed to form new combinations. This new work continues Bookhou’s interest in hand drawn geometries and abstract forms that escape formality by overlapping in unexpected ways through juxtapositions of shape, scale and surprise.
Fabric is 100% quilting weight cotton.
