Two of Henri Matisse’s cut-out designs have been adapted as part of the collection of abstract cushion designs for ZIVA.
Matisse‘s cut-outs have been my inspiration before!
A small purse adapted from Matisse’s semi-abstract paper-cut-out called ‘The Horse, Rider and Clown’ from his 1947 book called ‘Jazz’, was my first inspiration.
Then I added a whimsical cuff bracelet design influenced by Matisse’s “La Perruche et la Sirène”.
You can also have a look at two unique clutch bag designs inspired by Matisse's cut-outs!
‘MODERNISM AND MATISSE’ … a delicate and rhythmic design adapted from Matisse’s mid-20th century cut-outs’ period.
A series of hard-edge graphic shapes in colours of yellow, orange, red, blue and turquoise, sit in a (planned) haphazard fashion on a soft, warm beige background.
A related palette of bright primary colours artfully arranged into the shape of a snail to create a new abstract cushion design… 'Matisse’s Snail'!
For these two large cushion designs to work together as a pair, I softened the background colour of the snail pattern to gentle beige.
This adaptation gives ‘Matisse’s Snail’ cushion design a more contemporary flavour!
What a bold and colourful complementary pair of abstract cushions.
'Matisse's Snail' design was absolutely fun to paint with its dynamic colours and abstract shapes.
It's now ready to ship out.
It's also a perfect size to hang in your contemporary home.
Thank you Monsieur Matisse!
