AEON x Sean Martorana Tiles Textile Design

While exploring ideas for a new collection, I had a couple of criteria in mind. First, I wanted to create a series with broad appeal, in which anyone viewing the collection could directly relate to at least one of the images. Whether it be the color, symbolism or theme, I really wanted the art to transcend boundaries.

The other criteria was to create a series that had a broad but well thought out visual language. Something that rides the overlapping lines of art + design - that at its highest level, can be taken apart, dissected and used to create art across a variety of mediums, objects, products and spaces.

Exploring nature’s imperfect beauty has always been a strong theme in my work. I can remember as far back as a child looking through my grandmothers watercolor illustrated nature guidebooks that she had perched on her windowsills. Nature is filled with imagery that can stimulates the senses. It can be sexy, bold and beautiful. It’s something we connect to on a very deep, even evolutionary level.

This series speaks to the intertwining of art, design and nature. It’s a series that can spark conversation and serve as a reinforcement of the beauty to be found in the imperfections in life and nature.

Collectively this series and its accompanying collections are named AEON.
An appreciation and gratitude for the natural world that surround us.

AEON will be released over the entire year of 2020. At the beginning of each month, new designs will be announced with corresponding variants on - and applications of - each of those designs.
