The Art of Bereavement

I am showing 2 pieces of work in the exhibition The Art of Bereavement curated by Prof. Lesley Millar MBE, Director Anglo Japanese Textile Research Centre, School of Craft and Design UCA.

The exhibition will be held at the Crafts Study Centre,  from 12th May 2015 until 30th May 2015. The International Textile Research Centre Conference: ‘Trauma. Grief. Loss: the art of bereavement’ will be held on 15th May 2015 at University for the Creative Arts, Farnham is now open for booking.

In discussion with Prof. Millar two pieces have been selected, one from the 2010 exhibition Revealing Evidence at Pitzhanger Manor, Sir John Soanes House and Gallery, a joint exhibition with Sarah Pickering and a new piece.  Selecting the work gave me the opportunity to get some of the work from Revealing Evidence out of the archives. It has been really enjoyable to view and evaluate the work and make plans to develop some of it further.

The new piece of work, for the Art of Bereavement exhibition is a  piece first initiated a little while ago.  I am looking forward to working on it and having the  opportunity to resolve it for the exhibition in May at UCA Farnham.
