With the Knitting and Stitching Show in London next week and other gallery commitments to fulfil I am very busy stitching. I’m going on with my series based on the South Downs. For non British readers of this blog, the Downs are gently rolling hills that run along just inland from the south coast of England and I live a five minute drive from them. They have influenced my work for many years. The forms and colours change dramatically throughout the year, and it’s this that I’m currently exploring. Light, shadow, crops and pathways are recurring features for me.
I put up a couple of images earlier this summer but here are sections from two recently completed works. They will be on show for the first time at the Mall Galleries in London in January along with other pieces from the series.
So here are the two central sections from the Downs, one based on summer, with hints of poppies in the fields, and the second looks at days in early autumn with the Isle Of Wight in the distance.
I’ll be posting later again this month with more exhibition news.
