Unique piece of textile art, perfect for sea lovers. Flock printed recycled fabric embellished and embroidered with coastal inspired textures in a soft muted palette of blues and greens with hand finished shell motifs.
Mounted on a deep canvas frame to display as is or frame. Personally I prefer an unglazed tray/box frame to show off the texture of the textiles. Shown here in a standard 8" x 8" frame with glass removed.
Dimensions: 17.5 x 17.5 x 2cm
My work investigates change over time, not just eroding or decaying but new layers of growth, giving juxtapositions of structure and colour. Recent work highlights the issue of plastic pollution and the permanence of disposables through sculptures that combine embellished textiles and cement cast in plastic waste, inviting us to consider the packaging that we use and discard on a daily basis; objects that are so lightweight and seem so insignificant that we barely notice them. Naturally inspired textures emphasise the way our waste becomes subsumed into the natural world around us.
I create coastal inspired textures using a combination of embellishing and embroidery; blending a variety of recycled fabrics to create subtle variations in tone. These are stitched inside waste plastic to cast true to life pieces with cement giving a distinct contrast between the manmade structure of the packaging and the soft natural textures of the textiles.
