Linda Florence - House of Bling 2

This six-week residency supports an established designer/maker at a key stage in their career. It enables the artist to undertake research, explore new ideas and make significant developments in their practice within the context of Cove Park’s international and cross-disciplinary programme.

Previous residents on this programme include Charlotte Linton, Lina Peterson, Joe Pipal, Pottinger and Cole and Lucian Taylor.

Linda Florence is a designer working in bespoke handmade wallpapers and installation artworks. Her works are driven by narratives and often involve an interactive element.

She intends to use her residency to explore cultural references to textile and pattern design within homes and to look at how the action of making connects people with particular reference to a story about tenement cleaning and decorating in Paisley from the early part of the 20th Century.
