'Cube and Colour' at Barefoot features a collection of patchwork and weavings by the Barefoot design team and a retrospective of Barbara Sansoni–Lewcock’s textiles sculptures.
This is the team's first exhibition in five years, which includes photographer Dominic Sansoni; Preethi Hapuwatte, Marie Gnanaraj and Nelum Harasgama who have worked with Barbara for several years; designer Nilloufer Victoria; patchwork expert Shaunagh Aluwihare; sewing expert Gnei Raseen, and Dunyasha Victoria.
Barefoot is famous for their beautiful, bold textiles - their sarongs being particularly popular amongst Colombo's young and restless - and it should be an interesting exhibition. Go have a look; see the evolution of Barbara Sansoni's vision and discover the narratives woven beneath those bright, iconic fabrics that we love so much.
