Mark Corfield-Moore

Bangkok, Thailand, 1988

About

Mark Corfield-Moore is a painter whose practice holds woven textiles at its core. The conception of fabrics as nomadic objects is fundamental to his work. Investigating the historic use of textiles in the production of rugs and tents, items that are portable and attached to no specific location, his understanding of fabrics and his practice at large is rooted in this sense of transience. These ideas draw, in part, on the artist’s own mixed Thai and British heritage, a diasporic identity he consciously reflects upon and interrogates with nuance in his work.

Utilising a distinctive technique based on ikat, a process he learnt in northern Thailand, the artist askews the traditional method of binding and dyeing by painting directly onto the warp threads. Winding the threads on the loom further complicates and distorts the image resulting in a unique glitchiness or what he calls a ‘fizzy heat’. The instability of the form reflects his interest in the nature of both personal memory and collective history, a meditation into our evolving relationship with the past.
