I've been busy working on a new project, something a little bit different from my previous pieces and a bit of an experiment. This work if for an exhibition called Cabinet of Curiosities at The Chapel Gallery in Ormskirk ( dates to be confirmed). I will be exhibiting with 'Re-View' which is a group of talented textile artists that push the boundaries of textiles and its classification of craft.
It was my intention to produce a three-dimensional piece of work, contained within a glass domed cloche. Inside will be a world full of ‘micro-blooms’, influenced by botanical illustrations of the late nineteenth century and inspired by the Victorian fascination of decorative arts and the preservation and presentation of nature under glass domes.
