THE MULTI-TALENTED artist who helped Katharine Hamnett to start a fashion company more than 30 years ago is exhibiting at one of the latest of the galleries colonising Dalston for the hipster army.
Jeffrey Pine, who describes himself as a photographer, a sculptor, a muralist, and “above all, an artist”, is showing sculpture, original paintings and prints at The Invisible Line from today to Tuesday 26 June 2012.
The exhibition, says the gallery’s Sheila Ruiz, “grows out of work from sketchbooks, the artist’s play with geometry and his exploration with the illusion of depth”.
Pine has lived in Hackney for 25 years. Hamnett became famous as a fashion designer in the early 1970s after her work was taken up by the actress Elizabeth Taylor (1932-2011). When Margaret Thatcher was in No 10, the designer made world headlines by giving the Prime Minister a T-shirt emblazoned with an anti-war message.
