A Darker Thread exhibition at Oriel Myrddin Gallery Carmarthen

Dates: 15 July – 21 October 2017
Location: Oriel Myrddin Gallery, Carmarthen, Wales

I’m delighted to be exhibiting works from my Treading Clouds & Updraughts (pictured above) series as a part of the ‘A Darker Thread’ exhibition at Oriel Myrddin Gallery in Carmarthen, Wales, this summer.

Exhibitors have been selected for their challenging, confrontational or unpredictable approach to making thoroughly contemporary work which confidently cross boundaries of art, design and craft. A variety of making processes are exemplified, but all make use of thread in some form.

Wales has a much celebrated tradition of creating both utilitarian and decorative textiles of distinctive design. From power-loomed blankets to hand-stitched quilts, textiles are a key part of Welsh visual culture and history.

Whilst ‘A Darker Thread’ takes this heritage as its starting point, twelve contemporary artists, designers and makers have been invited to exhibit work which subverts these expectations.
