Lost in Landscape

For the last two years I have been studying for an MA in Textiles at UCA, Farnham. It has been a valuable opportunity to reflect on my practice in dialogue with Professor Lesley Millar. The focus of my research was on Landscape. I have been thinking about how the making process can be a metaphor for the landscape. The work like the landscape appears physically substantial, but it is made up of numerous small, delicate and intricate elements but like the landscape it references there is an underlying order and sequence. Patchwork is a process of layers. There are hidden seams, raw edges and loose threads.

The two images above are details taken from my quilt ‘Lost in Landscape’. The complete work can be seen at the MA Graduation Show 2017 which takes place at the University for the Creative Arts, Falkner Road, Farnham, Surrey, GU9 7DS.                        29 August – 2nd September 9.30 – 2nd September.
