Burano Back Street is No. 36 of my 50@50


I'm interested in stitch as drawing, as painting, as contemporary mark making.  Here colours and threads entwine and mix  - I liken this to Impressionism, it's tactile pointillism!

Free machine embroidery on heavy wool: this contemporary textile artwork responds to time and place.  I work directly from drawings of a scene, an occasion/happening.  It's a moment in time, a moment in light that catches my attention and I am compelled to sew.  You can see the original drawing in the gallery of images.


This piece is part of '50@50' a collection of work I produced to celebrate my 50th year in 2019 - first exhibited at Timeless Textiles [Newcastle, Australia] and then at Helmsley Arts Centre [Yorkshire, UK] The latter solo show sadly cut short by the current situation.

Textile piece approx 22cm wide - surface mounted/floated on 30 x 30cm mount board [soft white] Framed in a Limed Ash Box frame

Signed and titled & there's a signed Certificate of Authenticity on the reverse.
