Areez Katki Studio ‘01.10.2017’ featuring Derya Parlak

Areez Katki’s ongoing textile practice at Glanville Terrace in Parnell is not a seasonal affair. It is not organized by collection, nor is it stylistically cohesive. Instead, garments are divided into families of ‘Series’ as opposed to collections.

Areez find fibers derived from various breeds of sheep, silkworms and plants, endeavouring to study their characteristics and treat those fibres with careful consideration & respect – whilst including them in his creative practice. This, like any craft practice, he says, will constantly develop and grow.

This ‘Series’ celebrates the ‘Composition’ and ‘Egyptian cotton’ garments, photographed in Areez’s studio by friend and collaborator Olivia Renouf.
