New work by Janice Gunner
A selection of my newest work.
Inspired by the thought that this magical place might one day be lost to the water on which it is built.
This piece uses colour, texture and stitch to evoke the fragility of this great city; and to describe the vulnerability of its architecture, the effects of erosion and the constant threat of the waters that flow hrough its very being.
Hand-dyed cotton fabrics from Farbstoff, hand-dyed batik from Ghana and my own rust dyed fabrics. Machine-pieced before machine and hand-quilting.
From a series of needle-felted pieces made for my solo exhibition Working the Surface, which was shown at Festival of Quilts 2009 and the Knitting & Stitching Shows London, Dublin & Harrogate 2009.
Linen and cotton dyed-fabrics, needle-felted on to indigo-dyed cotton wadding, hand and machine-embroidered and quilted.
