Edge to Edge – Landscapes on Cloth
Shape, repetition, colour, scale and texture. The sublime landscape, the ordinary every-day built environment, these are the corner stones of my practice as artist and textile designer.
Every fabric I’ve created began as a drawing in my sketch book, made in situ mostly, in whatever landscape that’s inspiring me. My art practice has always informed my design process but in this new work I’ve made for Edge to Edge, my textile practice informs and underpins my artwork.
Using my own Cloth designs as the canvas I’m experimenting with making large scale stencil printed landscapes and streetscapes from places I know.
It’s an interesting, circular process and as I’ve worked through the concept I’ve discovered beauty in some unlikely places.
