TOILETPAPER Magazine

TOILETPAPER Magazine

TOILETPAPER is an ambiguous editorial project founded by Maurizio Cattelan and Pierpaolo Ferrari in 2010. This picture based bi-annual publication explores the possibility of the images being able to live beyond the pages, with no text throughout the magazine other than the list of contributors, the images are left to speak for themselves and create their own surreal narrative from one full page spread to the next.

Hazel Stark

Hazel Stark

I first saw Hazels work at Nothing But Navy and immediately loved her work. Hazel is a designer maker hailing from Hackney, her work going between printed textiles and ceramics. I particularly love her puff-print bags and cushions from New Abstract last year. Hazels’ work explores texture and mark making that is simplistic and automatic by nature, yet subtle and sophisticated. I’m looking forward to seeing what Hazel will do next. Feature
