(artist's post from February 17)
I apologize for these pictures. I took them with my cell phone and the colour isn't quite right!
I went to see Judy Martin's work that was exhibited in their gallery.
I entered the gallery and walked right by the work. I guess I was expecting My Light Green Heart to be much larger.
The warn linen looked so soft. You really did want to touch it and feel its softness and the folds and the texture of the layered hand-stitched circles.
Quoted from the gallery label:
Judy's work is grounded in the phenomenological idea that sense of touch is the most effective way to make an emotional connection with others and her surfaces are covered with hand stitching.
She used vintage Damask linen which she dyed.
I just received some antique italian linen which I printed on. The design of the weave shows through the printing and gives a lovely texture.
