Gemma Land: " Modern Art on Silk "

They are unique, made of 100% silk crepe and add a touch of sophistication to any outfit. Bourgeois Utopia is a line of gorgeous scarves printed with black-and-white images from London-based photographer Gemma Land and produced by The Creatives Archives (TCA), a platform for driven emerging talent.

Since graduating in 2009 with an MA in Photography from London College of Communication, Gemma Land has shown her varied portfolio of work in galleries in the UK and Internationally. She is interested in the ideology and socio-political structures within residential and public architecture.
With influences such as Bernd and Hilla Becher, Andy Warhol, Francesca Woodman and Eugene Atget, her photographs of suburban houses feature an unsettling symmetry. Gemma also takes inspiration from the Gothic, Baroque, and Surrealism art movements.

Gemma Land has won the Creatives Archives Award that enabled her to cross boundaries between fashion, art and photography, and launched her first collection of scarves at London and Paris A/W10 fashion week.
