Oh my, has it really been a month since I last updated? March passed by faster than a speeding bullet and now that it’s April, I am raring to go. First up! As you might have read from the previous posts, I recently had an exhibition at The Arts House. It was great fun working with the three artists and the exhibition organizers. The looms in our bones has really grown close to my heart, not least because so many people seemed to be able to connect to it and create their own meanings from the works, which is always a bonus point for me. The research for this series led me to many “Omg really???!! That is so amazing!!” moments about embroidery and textiles in traditional cultures and I foresee having many more. Thank you to everyone involved and all the people who took the time to talk to me about this series.
Here are some photos of the works and the exhibition.
The works are made using watercolour, pencil and of course embroidery (all by hand!) on watercolour paper. They are of varying sizes (as you can see from the first photo).
Something tremendously exciting will be out in May, I am jumping out of my seat I can’t hardly wait. And there are shows and exhibitions in the works for the second half of the year, looking forward to all that. I’m also starting on a simple daily project that I hope will keep my fingers busy, so keep a lookout. I think that’s all for now, I hope everyone is having a merry April so far!
