  • About the Artist

‘Colour is my obsession. Through a unique process of extremely refined hand dyeing and weaving I have been able to capture powerful ‘colourfields’ within a constructed surface. Each thread echo’s a painted line. Intelligent colour theory underpins an emotional exploration of intuitive colour.’

Since 1997 Ptolemy Mann has been running her own studio practice, which she established after graduation from Central Saint Martins and the Royal College of Art. Her unique approach to hand dyeing and weaving wall-based, architectural art works has become the basis for a modern-day Bauhaus philosophy of art making and design underpinned with intelligent colour theory.

Her time consuming and unique approach to creating these art works has evolved over a twenty-year period. Exquisite dynamics of colour move across their fine surface creating a painterly sweep. The term CHROMATIC MINIMALISM has been applied to her work and she is heavily influenced by Abstract Expressionism and architecture. Mann is interested in making large scale, emotional work that expresses a deep sense of craftsmanship and precision through an abstract narrative. She has completed many large scale, site specific art installations using a number of materials and processes and exhibits and lectures regularly throughout the UK and abroad; writes for the magazine Selvedge, curates and has received two grants from the Arts Council of England.
