We move forward from two successful exhibitions in 2016 in Prague and in the USA to the challenge of an exhibition in the Netherlands in the Autumn. We continue to work on A2 sized pieces in portrait format and will be producing four pieces over the year with the theme of 'Freedom'. An essential part of our art is working in series to a common format which does give us all a framework for our creative endeavours.

Better late than....

As always I am running a bit behind, though this time it is caused by the fact that I decided to put colonial knot edging around the quadrilobe motif from Chartres Cathedral. The  Cathedral has become a bit of an obsession in the last year or so ( I have written a bit about it on my blog)  and I am fascinated by the representation of women and their faces of old within the Cathedral. There are over 400 representations of the feminine in the cathedral which is quite unusual. The image I have used for this  piece is from a sculpture by Bridan of the Ascension of Mary- it dates form the eighteenth century and so seems a bit out of kilter with the gothic style of the rest of the cathedral. I do love the faces of the angel though.
So  the photos show the original sculpture, then the isolation of the face- some doctoring in photoshop and then printed onto fabric painted with Inkaid and then stitched.
