Glasgow based artist Rachel Adams has been in residence at The Lombard Method from March until June 2013, undertaking research and developing new work.
Adams has been exploring the relationship between science fiction, classical sculptural forms and decorative craft techniques, questioning the historical and cultural value of materials. For this end of residency presentation she has produced new objects combining craft techniques including macramé with contemporary commercial techniques such as laser cutting and vinyl printing. The works all use motifs commonly seen in interior design from the 1960s and 70s, such as eye clocks and plant hangers. By combining these materials and motifs, Adams aims to create associations between interior styling and predictions of the future, creating an installation synthesised from an unfamiliar combination of past and present “Earth” styles.
