Liminal – crossing the threshold

I am rather late posting my response to this exhibition – life happens.

The exhibition was one of the best I think – so many excellent and diverse textiles in response the subject ‘Liminal’ – that space between the conscious, the seen, and the borders of reality.

I am exhibiting three pieces of textile art in response to the theme:                   ‘Liminal’ – crossing the threshold.

‘Haphazard, misshapen branches from fallen trees pepper the route of my morning walks. I am always intrigued by the ambiguity of their forms – some gnarled and twisted, others smooth and elegant. It is the essence of creatures that lurk between the dead wood and my imagination that informs my felted and embroidered sculptures’.

The Contemporary Textile Fair 2013

The Contemporary Textile Fair 2013 was held at the Landmark Arts Centre, Teddington – March 8th -10th 2013

This was the first time I had exhibited at the Fair and I had a really enjoyable weekend. The Landmark Arts Centre building is a large Gothic style church with high vaulted ceilings and some beautiful stained glass windows. Despite its lofty ceilings the space was warm and inviting and the exhibitor stands were set out in well-lit booths.
