PROJECT 1 — Inky Series

About this project

Part of an on-going series of works exploring qualities of light, contrasting tones of dense dark inky pools and shimmering layers of rich colour. A feeling of movement – spinning, floating, sinking.
‘Swirl’ won The Cordis Prize for Tapestry 2016 and exhibited at the Biscuit Factory, Newcastle, 2017 and The Scottish Gallery, ‘Lines & Lineage’, 2017. ‘Ripple’ was woven to accompany other work in ‘Lines & Lineage’.
‘Dark Shimmer’ was woven for the 30th Anniv exhibition of Brown Grotta Arts, 2017
