It is always interesting submitting a "textile" piece into an "art" exhibition - although easier than it was years ago - there is still the eternal debate between "art" and "craft".
The exhibition brief is "In a country Churchyard" - which appealed to me as I have been wanting to do a piece about my local church yard - which I really like. I spent a day there last week with sketchbook and camera. My way of working is not a literal translation of what I see - but concepts and feelings. So the thoughts behind my piece will be around ancestors, life's journey, (cradle to grave), elements.
I want to do the piece on layers of tissue paper - the way it disintegrates is part of the process.
In an earlier sketchbook I had a "journey" design which I wanted to incorporate in this bigger piece. (Canvass size 30cm x 90cm)
I also want to include one of the angels!
