Jill Sharpe - The Stitched Line 
24 May - 3 June

A statement from the artists: 

My work is informed by the world around me and over the past two years I have made work in response to the challenges of lockdown and the emotions generated by our changed circumstances.

I use both hand and machine techniques both to construct pieces and to work into the surface. Working mostly in silks and sometimes in cotton I often dye and paint my own fabrics to create the exact colours and effects that I require. I enjoy developing a variety of surface treatments to interpret my ideas and use thread as line to accent and augment surfaces.
