To Make a Room
with Ptolemy Mann

Handwoven, handspun Anatolian wool
& mohair flatweave rug


I'm looking forward to seeing this new exhibition
at Christopher Farr of Ptolemy Mann's new work.
This will be an exhibition of new flatweaves, fabrics,
and woven textiles. See you Friday Christina...
(I've been meaning to get over to Christopher Farr
for sometime now, and excited to be there for
this lecture by the artist.)


Also hoping to have time for some other galleries:
Cannon Hudson at LaCienega Projects,
Tim Hawkinson at Blum and Poe,
Robert Heinecken and others at Cherry and Martin,
and Cris Brodahl at Marc Foxx,
Alice Neel at La Louver....


Ptolemy Mann is a textile artist and architectural colour consultant.
Since 1997, after graduating Royal College of Art, Mann's hand dyed and woven textile art works have graced the walls of many corporate, public and domestic interiors internationally.

“As soon as I started weaving it was like magic…everything slotted into place. Weaving channeled all my interests, all my in uences. A recurring theme in my work for many years has been a fascination with the transition from one color to another; the movement and ‘traveling’ in between complementary opposites in particular” says Mann, a London based textile artist and designer who works as a color consultant specializing in architectural projects. Her collaboration with Christopher Farr brings her trademark color sense to the ancient tradition of hand weaving in Turkey for the first time.

Ptolemy Mann works in partnership with architects, art consultants and interior designers to produce hand dyed and Woven Textile Art pieces to commission for specific domestic, corporate and public spaces. Carefully stretched and three dimensional, these panels bring dynamic colour and geometric form to interior spaces.

Through collaborative development with architects Ptolemy Mann now offers an Architectural Colour Consultancy service advising on colour application within and without the built environment. She specializes in external fa├žade colour schemes and explores the use of colour internally particularly in relation to way finding and psychological wellbeing within healthcare environments.
