ORLA is an interdisciplinary artist and maker . Her practice explores themes surrounding human emotion, behaviour and connection; often expressing concepts through a combination of image and text.
With HOLD, ORLA is collaborating with friend and clothing designer, Itiya Stawksi – bringing Brainchild a soft, comfortable and stimulating textile space for contemplating connection or to simply be held by. Bloated cushions and adjustable strip curtains are painted with words and images from the artists journals and drawings, offering prompts to be engaged with on the subjects of intimacy, connection and community.
