Part of a series first shown at Oriel Ynys Mon, Anglesey, April to June 2015
Informed during my childhood on the North East coast and now the West coast where I live and sail, the inspiration for the ‘Waves’ series of hangings came from the tumbling, rolling and constantly reshaping moods of the sea; sometimes gentle, twinkling in sunlight, sometimes tumultuous and threatening.
My response to hearing, via the news media, how much at cross-purposes are the actions of our various political and quasi-political bodies and how far we are from resolving most of the world’s problems and inequities. Everything in the quilt is at cross-purposes. Habotai silk. Various techniques used including painting, writing, couching, free-motion quilting and beading.
