'Inner Silence I'

Painted and hand coloured cloth, found objects on silk, cotton and calico

This body of work is inspired by the poem by Christina Rossetti, called 'The Thread of Life' and also the death of my mother and the changes in family dynamics when a family member dies.  The process of making was cathartic, by using driftwood, a reference is made to a childhood growing up by the sea. The use of black acrylic paint which pools and creates its own shapes on the surface of the fabric gives the impression of footsteps on wet sand.

The irresponsive silence of the land

The irresponsive sounding of the sea
