Loose Ends
About the Event
The possibilities of thread inform my practice. In this latest body of work, large-scale drawing of threads, lines and imagined textiles address ideas of time spent, repetition and the vocabulary of repair.

Further Information

As a vehicle to explore the potential of line, the vocabulary of thread covers a rich dynamic range. Whether ravelling or unravelling, it can be used as a form of social commentary, whilst capturing autobiographical gestures too.

For much of art history, weaving, knitting, knotting or stitch have been relegated to the craft category, much in the same way that drawing has been seen as a mere preparatory act, the poor cousin of the completed painting or sculpture. Yet today a re-evaluation of both craft and drawing is taking place with major exhibitions and publications devoted to these genres, their economics and politics. Boundaries are shifting and critical theory is repositioning these works, so that ‘function’ is no longer a dirty word and paper has a more equal stake.

In Loose Ends, a body of work based around string constructions, I bring drawing and fibre art together to explore ideas of time spent, concepts of repetition and the beauty of the mistake. Large-scale works on paper let me follow the course of a line, where the hand of the maker is not present but their gesture remains visible.
