Leicester Society of Artists Annual Exhibition

I am pleased to be showing a group of new work in the annual exhibition of Leicester Society of Artists at New Walk Museum, Leicester. This group was previously shown in my solo exhibition Emotional Repair.

The exhibition opens 9th November – 8th December.

Traces 1 – Blind Embossing on paper

Traces 2 – Monoprint on paper

Traces 3 – Textile

I believe this tray cloth was made by my paternal grandmother who died before I was born.  I have recorded and preserved the stitching using printing techniques before unpicking the colourful embroidery and leaving just the traces of needle marks and thread shadow behind. By reworking my grandmother’s work I hope to give it a new life, a new meaning. The processes I use to make these pieces honour the invisible traces of textile inheritance my grandmother left me. 

These works are for sale from the museum during the exhibition.

Traces 1 – Blind Embossing on paper £300 framed.

Traces 2 – Monoprint on paper £350 framed.

Traces 3 – Textile £500 framed.
