Line/Extended Exhibition and online essay response

Line/Extended has been open for 4 weeks now. The opening reception on the 17th October involved a short speech and Q&A with exhibiting artists Rosana Antolí, Andrea V Wright and myself. Artist Jane Grisewood was not able to join in with the Q&A as Jane was otherwise engaged… performing her ‘Blind Drawing’ in the Gallery for the duration of the opening. In Line/Extended, I am exhibiting anti-form works ‘you will miss me when I go… and ‘Waisted/Wasted’, from my Offering series 2012-2019.

Dr Barbara Brownie, Associate Dean of School and Lecturer in Visual Communication at the University of Hertfordshire, has written an essay responding to Line/Extended; Material doodles and drawing through space. 

Line/Extended continues until 20 December 2019

My ‘(A) bit of skirt’ now on show in The 16th International Triennial of Tapestry. Lodz. 2019

On Saturday 5th October 2019 The 16th International Triennial of Tapestry; ‘Breaching Borders’ opened at The Central Museum of Textiles in Lodz, Poland. My Artwork “A bit of skirt” is part of this Prestigious Exhibition. With huge thanks to my 27 Crowd funder Supporters (see below), I flew out to Poland on Tues 1st October 2019 to install my ‘bit of skirt’ in situ, stayed in Lodz for the opening weekend and flew back to the UK on Mon 7th October 2019. There two other exhibitions which are part of the Triennial are ‘National Exhibition of Polish Tapestry’ curated by Janis Jefferies and ‘National Exhibition of Polish miniature Textiles’ curated by Anna Sliwa.

It is a great honour to be part of this amazing Triennial, and to be exhibiting in such a remarkable, breathtaking venue. ‘A Bit of Skirt” is one of 55 works in the Triennial and I am the Sole Artist representing the UK in the Exhibition. The Triennial is documented indepth in its own publication with supporting essays by Ann Coxon and Marta Kowalewska and also in pictures on the Central Museum’s website, (link below). ‘Breaching Borders’ continues until 15 March 2020.
