Stitch Stories

Last week I was mostly taking embroidered art to be shown in Bank Street Arts 'Embroidered Narratives" exhibition. Opening event (Facebook)

"Reflection"
"Protected"
I submitted two pieces, and was delighted to have them both accepted. The brief was to submit contemporary "illustrative" textiles, representative, or abstract.


In the work ‘Protected‘ I wanted strong graphical representation of women, with the overlaying figure subtly overseeing and encircling in a protective way. On display but in control.  


The work ‘Reflection’ is taken from a sketch of a male model, but I aimed for an androgynous and anonymous representation of the figure. 



Bank Street Arts will be hosting an open afternoon for Embroidered Narratives on Friday 13th July, between 3:00pm and 6:00pm. All welcome. Cafe Juniper will be open for tea and cake

The exhibition runs from 02/07/2012 - 31/09/2012

Good point Lyn, I'll check the exact dates as there's some mix up on the web site.
