Rhoko x Aeand Studio | Hepworth
A collaboration with Aeand Studio, each screen-printed design is an homage to some of our favourite woman artists to celebrate International Women’s Day. This design is influenced by our love of modernist sculptor: Dame Barbara Hepworth.
Hepworth’s work exemplifies Modernism and in particular modern sculpture. She was a leading figure in the colony of artists who resided in St Ives during the First and Second World Wars. Hepworth won widespread public recognition in the last years of her life, when she was regarded as the world’s greatest woman sculptor. In her obituary in The Guardian she was described as ‘probably the most significant woman artist in the history of art to this day’.
A portion of the sales will be donated to Gurl Talk a charity that provides resources and a safe space for young womxn and gxrls to discuss mental health, sexuality, self-care, anxiety, body image, loneliness, relationships, depression, and social Justice.
Each piece is screen printed by hand using plastic-free water-based inks and printed on strong and durable paper which is 100% cotton rag from recycled t-shirt offcuts. Aeand Studio prefers to work with a small independent business Khadi, established in 1980 who has been working with their Indian paper mill for over 20 years.
