Technique:Hand felted artist made needle felt and stitch.
Materials: Dyed merino wool tops and various natural fibres, fabrics and threads.
Photographer: Stephen Yates, details: artist.
On the steep hot Alpujarra hillside shadow and lines are re drawn and traced by man and animals, representing the many journeys through a fragile landscape. Influenced by “Lines: A Brief History’ by Tim Ingold, where he considers the thread with the trace and their additive or reductive structure. Various quality of line were explored by adding threads or cutting away.
