Offerings Exhibition at R Space Gallery. Lisburn NI is now open!

The Exhibition install went well, took 8 days working on site. The opening reception took place on Saturday 24th February and I ran a ‘Reconsidering Clothes’ workshop on Wednesday 28th February. I have very much enjoyed the process of working with the gallery space. ‘Bit of Skirt’ and ‘waisted: wasted’ were finally completed in the gallery. Photos below are of installing the work, including the much needed scaffolding tower which, at times, seemed to became part of the work. Offerings continues until Friday 23rd March 2018.

‘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…
