Biography

'Goldsmith is amongst the foremost textile artists working in the UK at the present time' .     Prof. Lesley Millar MBE Director Anglo Japanese Textile Research Centre.                           

Shelly Goldsmith uses textile materials and processes as a metaphor for imagining how psychological states, emotions and memories associated with human fragility and loss can be made visible in cloth and pre-worn clothing. Developing the project 'Stains and Stories' Goldsmith is working on a UCA and Arts Council funded project Locus of the Dress. This initiated a partnership with Clinical Psychologist Dr. Herminia Hernaiz-Sanders in exploring the theory 'Locus of Control' through drawing and printing on the outside and inside surface of clothing. The project draws upon photographic documentation and drawings of both Cincinnati Ohio, USA and Ramsgate Kent, as my two 'home' locations,  to explore the 'locus of control' psychological theory and the construciton of our sense of self. 

Collaborations with Dr. Annie Shaw at Manchester Metropolitan University for the Stroud International Textile Festival and Barber/Swindells at Huddersfield University have raised opportunities to provoke fresh outcomes as well as present findings and new understandings.  

Goldsmith has exhibited extensively in the UK, Europe, Japan and the USA most recently in the Art_Textiles Exhibiton at the Whitworth Art Gallery, Manchester and Lódz Blouse Trilogy at UCA. 

Goldsmith regularly contributes to conferences and seminars and will be presenting ‘Looking beyond the warp and weft: unpicking latent narratives in clothing’  at ‘The Matter of Material’ symposium at the Turner Contemporary, Margate in April 2017.  Other talks include the Digital Encounters Conference at UCA and Enfolded Meanings at the National Gallery, London and for the Threads of Feeling exhibition at the Foundling Museum, London. 

In 2013 Goldsmith joined the Fashion Textiles: Print teaching team at the University for the Creative Arts, Rochester as a Senior Lecturer. Their European collaborative 'Crysalis' research project was shown at the Metamorphosis exhbition Ronse Textile Museum, Belgium and at the Lace Effects exhibition, Calais Lace & Fashion Museum. 'Digital Encounters' the final exhibition of the project and was shown at UCA Canterbury June 2014.  An experienced lecturer, Goldsmith founded the pioneering Textile Art department at Winchester School of Art, University of Southampton. She was a Senior Lecturer 1991 - 2006 and directed the BA (Hons) Textile Art and MA Degree, Textiles Practice and Theory. 

tippinggoldsmith is a creative partnership set up in 2009. Collaborating with the site specific designer Christopher Tipping and joining their range of knowledge and experience the partnership expands Goldsmith's practice through public and permanent installations, whilst developing Tipping's ideas into a gallery context. Recent outputs have been 'Mille Fleur' - Architectural Glass for The Dyson Centre for Neo Natal Intensive Care, commissioned by the Royal United Hospital, Bath, (NHS Foundation Trust).
