‘The secrets we keep from ourselves…’

I am delighted that my work ‘the secrets we keep from ourselves…’ will be part of Nottingham City’s Museums and Galleries Fine Art Textile Collection, UK.  This large scale woven textile installation will sit alongside my other works; ’Squeeze’, ‘Petti-fur-coat’, ‘Odd one out’ and ‘The Brides Clothes’ already part of the same collection. ‘the secrets we keep from ourselves…’ was commissioned by Nottingham Castle Museum & Art Gallery UK with funding from the Arts Council England through The National Lottery, for ’Lace Works – Contemporary Art & Nottingham Lace’ exhibition, Nottingham Castle Museum & Art Gallery, England. 10th November 2012 – 10th February 2013. As the work is complex to install with transient fragments that response to the exhibition space I am spending some time in the studio working on stabilizing the more transient seams and lace trims while writing up, documenting and drawing out guidelines for installation of the work.  To a certain extent this means re-adjusting and re-working…
