About the edition
Made from 100% superfine lambswool in a Jacquard knit technique. The design is based on Enrico David’s textile hangings which were included in The Encyclopedic Palace, the 55th International Art Exhibition of the Venice Biennale. This double-sided knitting style achieves a design rich finish. The front face of the blanket showcases the artist’s design, whilst a birdseye pattern, driven by the knitting style is achieved on the underside. The blanket has a noticeably soft handle and luxurious heavyweight feel, perfect for those cold winter nights.
David works in painting, drawing, sculpture, and installation, at times employing traditional craft techniques. In the 1990s he garnered acclaim for creating monumental embroidered portraits using sewn canvases, which often began as drawings and collages from fashion magazines. During the past several years Enrico has focused on sculpture in a variety of media and returned to more traditional methods of painting.
