Recently shot here at the Studio. Sydney based boutique Skarfe (Brad McGlashan) are back with another collaboration, this time with acclaimed New Zealand based artist Kushana Bush.

Three of Bush’s intricate gouaches on paper have been transformed into an exclusive collection of wearable art. Each luxurious, lightweight silk scarf is digitally printed and finished with hand-rolled hems.

Artist Kushana Bush lives and works in Dunedin, New Zealand, and regularly exhibits throughout New Zealand and Australia. In 2009 she worked in South Korea at the National Art Studio, Changdong, Seoul. That same year she won the Art and Australia Contemporary Art Award. Since then she has been the Frances Hodgkins Fellow at The University of Otago and was awarded the Arts Foundation New Generation Award. The three artworks featured in this range were first exhibited at the 2014 Melbourne Art Fair and acquired by the prestigious Michael Buxton Collection.

The limited edition range is available now at www.skarfe.com, in store and from selected stockists from this Tuesday.
