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.

I’m excited to show a little hint of a new style of work I’ve been working on, done by hand-stitching paper. I did a small one for the Art On A Postcard charity auction a few years ago, raising money for the Hepatitis C Trust. Here are a few sneak peeks of the first full-sized one, one is of the front and one is the reverse. 

 

For a works on paper show at the end of the year.
