10 Samples from the Mr and Mrs Edwards Simpson Collection 2005

Holes were burnt in ten samples of fabric from the Mr and Mrs Edward Simpson Collection. This collection of fabrics was a found in upholstery samples in my family's upholstery business in Portsmouth which after more than 40 years of trading closed in 2013 and at the time that the work was made in 2005 saw the business struggling to survive in a throwaway culture of mass consumerism. The story of the abdication of the King Edward to marry the twice divorced american Wallis Simpson connects to this lost era and highlights the destruction of English traditions of craftsmanship and the effect of the global economy upon our material world.
