Lucienne Day-The Geometric


"Lines"-a pattern created for Heals, a fabric design house in Britian

 Non-objective is pure design. We are not associating the images with anything we think we know. Only The Elements of Art* are referenced. Lucienne Day was inspired by these basic elements. This post is devoted to some of these pieces .

Lapis, 1953
Miscellany, 1952

Cockaigne, 1961

Diablo, 1962
Lucienne Day had a long career with a huge portfolio. This is my fourth and probably not last post showcasing her work. She is hugely inspirational for me as a designer. 

*  The Elements of Art are like the ingredients that a cook uses to create a dish. Artists use these to create a works of art. The These elements are: line, shape, space, form, color, texture, and value.
