Between me and the Sky

A mixed media textile, using negatives threaded together with translucent silk organza to create an ethereal, watery textile. This reflects the changing light and large expanses of sky that characterise the moorland landscape of Somerset.

‘Between me and the Sky’ was exhibited in ‘Traces of Life with the UK Textile Study group and the Swedish Textile Group in Sweden in 2014.

Layers of transparent negatives, recycled from old slides hints at traces memories of past lives in this area of Somerset.

Softly coloured fabrics give layers of moorland mists.
