I am obsessed with flowers. –Martyn Thompson
Martyn Thompson’s collection, Cezanne Shadow, initially inspired by Cezanne’s Vase with Blue Tulip, produced a series of photos that inspired him to intertwine his love for textiles and photography. This inspiration led to the creation of the Melting Series, a collection of flowery Jacquard tapestry fabrics, and the Falling In Love Series, a unique set of fabrics that marry Martyn’s personal art practice and textile collection.
I tried reproducing the photos on various media and I came across this Jacquard tapestry process. I loved it. Holding the fabric, it seemed like all of my worlds coming together. – Martyn Thompson
Featuring the cabbage rose image in print fabrics, wallpapers and wall murals, his work has a distinct aesthetic that is hard to miss.
Martyn Thompson is a New York based multidisciplinary designer working across textile, wallpaper design and photography.
