About the Project
Inspired by a visit to Eileen Gray’s villa E-1027, each print in this series by designer Orla Reynolds depicts an element of the villa.
"After many years of wanting to visit, I finally had the opportunity in August 2017. It was a treasured experience. I wandered around the villa with the exceptional tour guide and absorbed the thoughtfulness of each space and object and flow to the house. Imagining Eileen there.
"Over the following week, unexpectedly, I spent my time interpreting parts of the villa on canvas with acrylic. I created 5 paintings based on different elements of the villa. They have become some of my proudest work."
'You must arrive with calm, elegance and silence or Eileen won’t let you enter.'
Using silkscreen printing, the original paintings have been transformed into prints.
