Final Fabric Deisgn for Fresh Take @ Burghley House
From the proposal:
The work responds to Burghley House’s opulent display of paintings, textiles and carvings, specifically the abundant display of birds and hunting imagery.
It connects the decorative display of birds at Burghley House to the plumage of birds as a means of display during courtship. Both represent a display of status, with the aim of territorial dominance. The paintings and carvings of dead game at Burghley signify the wealth and abundance of the estate, and the status necessary for an expensive and prestigious leisure pursuit like hunting.
