The Aerial series of which this work forms part is inspired by the Avalon Marshes in Somerset, England. These new textile artworks are also inspired by the shapes formed by the clusters of reed beds that permeate the landscape. In this piece the artist explores how material and texture can have different effects under various lighting. She has used an iridescent pigment to screen print some areas and then a pearlescent thread to tuft adjacent patterns. The viewer is stimulated to move in towards the piece to discover its more detailed qualities. The result is an intriguing and unexpected combination of three dimensional form, visual and textural language.
