SILVERY THREADS – EXHIBIT A54
'MOONLIT WALLED GARDEN'

This exhibit is a combination of intermingled bold designs with differently stitched sections patched together using bold couching fabric lines over the joins.

There are a variety of collage techniques and threadwork, with hand embroidery and free machine stitching. Two colours of Hot Fix Angelina (raspberry and ultraviolet ) are randomly patched over orange and blue background fabrics.

Each patch has at least 4 different appliqué techniques and embossing using wooden printing blocks onto both Angelina and backing fabric using the heat of an iron to keep the shape.

The translucency of the Angelina combined with the silver thread embroidery has been used to give the impression of changing reflections of a moonlit walled garden.

Most of my work is based on etchings with thread work onto paper but this piece is a free embroidered textile artwork .

SOLO EXHIBITION
'Cathedral Connections'

Derby Cathedral Coffee House, Derby
Sat 17th Dec 2011 - Fri 24th Feb 2012
www.greendoor-printmaking.co.uk

This exhibition is inspired by Derby Cathedral's 'All Souls & All Saints' windows designed by welsh artist Ceri Richards in the 1960's. The images created are not realistic representations but reflect more upon the spectacular emotional associations and impact the windows have on entering the cathedral alongside the light and airy atmosphere the overall interior provokes.

I also hope my artworks reveal something of Ceri Richard's love of poetry and music - both of which he attributes as his own sources of individual inspiration.

The works are produced by means of a combination of fine art printing techniques together with some collage & stitch work and some deconstructing and restructuring of images to enhance the richness of the designs.


SOLO EXHIBITION

On the Eighth Day Art Cafe
111 Oxford Road, Manchester, M1 7DU
