Jocelyn Warner creates her designs by scanning objects and manipulating the resulting images on her computer to simplify their forms. The designs are bold and printed in refreshing colors. Step is from Warner’s second collection, produced in 2000. This piece was inspired by scanning folded paper, which led to a large three-dimensional design joined together in totem-pole lengths. The design is screenprinted in just one color and can be hung either in pilaster-like stripes or horizontally as a frieze. Warner’s wallpapers illustrate how digital technology is influencing surface design.
Warner is a British designer based in London. She studied textile design at the Camberwell School of Arts and Crafts and later at Central Saint Martins.
The acquisition of Step would add more depth to our contemporary holdings. The paper also reflects new trends and techniques in contemporary wallpaper design.
