York Botanic Art Prize

I feel honoured to have my work Marking Time Series 2 selected for the York Botanic Art Prize, which opened yesterday. On show until 23 January 2022 at Gallery 152, Avon Terrace York.

We tend to worship perfection and youth. This work, Marking Time – Series 2 celebrates and highlights the beauty of other stages of the lifecycle through an exploration of these messy textures, marks of a life lived, and vulnerability, all necessary for the cycle to continue.

The work consists of recycled business tie linings complete with stitch marks and dye bleed stains, doilies, silk scraps, offcuts of previous artworks, and threads, that have been folded, pleated and hand stitched.
