‘Sketches: The Sun That Divides’. 170 x 170 cm 2012

Technique: Felt and stitch

Materials: Merino wool tops, thread, tourist scarf.

Photographer: howaboutdave


A tourist route of sun seeking southern locations using a deconstructed Australian souvenir scarf embedded within the felt surface. Dividing like shadows, the stereotypical cliches associated with a specific location forming pre concieved expectations. Overlaid with threaded traces of an authentic experience from the artists travel sketch books.    


Exhibited in ’62 @ 50’ Holden Gallery, Manchester with The 62 Group of Textile Artists 2013.
