A Rebours – Stitch Drawing

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I’ve recently started a new series of works that are drawn by hand stitching black thread into white paper. They are an absolute nightmare to do but I like the way the line is never properly curved, which is a similar way to the way a lot of my tape lines end up. 

 

This one is going in a group show at Beers Contemporary in November.

Above is my third lightbox; entitled Albertine, that will be exhibited at The Mall Galleries in Trafalgar Square in November. I am one of Juror Elmo Hood’s nominated artists in the ING Discerning Eye Art Prize.

 

Black electrical tape on glass, encased in resin, and housed within bespoke lightbox.
