Melanphoria for Roberts Wood SS19

written by WALLPAPER
visual artist Amanda Camenisch was fascinated by the idea of self-realisation, drawing inspiration from the alchemical acronym V.I.T.R.I.O.L, represented by a symbol depicting seven stages in a circle, which lead to self realisation.
V.I.T.R.I.O.L stands for the phrase visit the interior of the earth and by rectifying and integrating what you find there you will discover the hidden stone’. The result is an avant-garde assemblage of earthy scenes, a model interacting with the natural environment, sculpting clay and throwing rocks, abstract shapes and cerebral depictions of the bow-detail, gingham and hand-linked honeycomb’ embellishments in the collection.
