For #Five2Watch this week we feature five artists who create textile artworks: Cas Holmes, Karen Woods, Madi Acharya-Baskerville, Sabine Jeanne Bieli and Linda Barlow
Unfolding Landscapes, 2016
New series of works looking at the overlooked edges of our landscape .I have been drawn to the 'lost' part of our landscape..the areas on the edges of our roads, railways and industrial areas we often miss simply because we pass and not really look at them. Environmentally of value in our increasingly built upon and urbanised spaces. Some of this work is currently featured in Visions Art Museum, San Diego and will also feature at Festival of Quilts with Art Textile Made in Britain.
I am Mother, 2004
Wall-hung textile/mixed-media piece. Heavily machined onto calico base. Narrative and figurative work, with a painterly approach. African influenced imagery.
Let it grow, 2017
Sculpture made with found wood, found object and discarded textiles exploring the gender issues
Blue Moon, 2017
Approx. 4 km of silk thread attached to two acrylic glasses by about 10,000 knots.
This piece consists of nothing but silk and light: it is cyanotype (a photographic process) taken into the third dimension.
The white sphere is cyano-printed into the body of silk threads. Saturated with the light-sensitive solution, the entire sculpture was exposed to sunlight and has thus been ‘printed’ by the sun.
The Impossible Art Of Juggling, 2005
The frustration of trying to keep so many things in the air at once and still keep an eye out for those who seek to unbalance you.
