Neil Bottle is a textile artist based in Kent where he combines his creative practice with his role as Programme Director for Fashion Textiles at University for the Creative Arts.
The All That Remains body of work was created as celebration of 30 years working as a textile artist and acts as a milestone, repositioning his practice in a research context. This context is an autobiographical narrative printed onto cloth, a memory bank, in which both physical photographic prints and digitally captured images are deconstructed and re-presented, the familiarity of which resonates and references one’s own values and connections with our past, present and future.
Neil Bottle’s work can be seen in major international collections including the Victoria and Albert Museum and the Crafts Council Collection in London and the Cooper Hewitt Museum in New York.
Neil has created work for clients including Liberty, Harrods, Fortnum & Mason, the British Museum, the Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre and the Royal Academy of Art in London as well as Neiman Marcus and Bergdorf Goodman, the Guggenheim Museum New York and the Philadelphia Museum of Art Pennsylvania in the USA.
This research has been funded by University for the Creative Arts and by the Ruthin Craft Centre in Denbighshire.
