For Morphogenesis, Boudicca Paloma and Rosa Doyle have both responded to the fantastic collection of Textile Design books and folios held in the Westminster Reference Library’s stores and shelves.


The artists both incorporate imagery from the natural world, bold colours and pattern in their work and the subject of Textile Design encompassed all three of these elements.

Doyle creates a series of paintings in response to the origins of the 18th Century French Textile house ‘Toile de Jouy’ whose designs were heavily influenced by traditional Indian Textiles. Using the national symbols of India she has composed a series of scenes encompassing the serenity, beauty and stillness of a pre-industrial age.

Boudicca Paloma presents a series of paintings utilising pattern to bridge a wide range of imagery and abstraction. Interested in how humans perceive and interpret pattern, often imitating the natural world ‘Marble Love’ is based upon crudely imitated marble found in the Hagia Sophia mosque in Istanbul.

She says, ‘I am also interested in human behaviour, why are we attracted to pattern and repetition, what is it about this natural phenomenon of creating, repeating and building life that is so appealing?’
