Blow The Wind Southerly

Large scale art textile selected for Contextile2016 International exhibiton, Guimaraes Portugal.  Measuring 150cm x 250cm.   Exploring the idea of journeys real and imagined, Blow the Wind Southerly was informed by the annual swallow migration whilst referencing ancient landscapes: a layered narrative somewhat like an archaeological dig.  Constructed over a period of time (2013 -2015) this final version combines digital technology (laser etched wood print blocks) with handmade and hand dyed and hand printed silk papers and Tissutex papers, with hand stitching and hand wrapping in paper yarns.  Mounted on a piece of bark cloth.  A reference to sails and overseas journies.
