Polar Bear Hugs

Contemporary Art Embroidered

In assimilating all the information that I’ve been consuming in the lead up to my Arctic Residency I’ve been creating numerous drawings and embroidered samplers.

This image is taken from a series of samplers that I’ve produced which are created in a similar style to my Consequences project. The works feature polar bears in embraces with other creatures as pictured above.

The symbol of the polar bear is now synonymous with the Arctic and so it has featured in a number of the preparatory works that I’ve produced so far. It provides viewers with a quick key into my work but this is likely to evolve as my research progresses.
