Alice Fox Spurn Cloth #1 creases catching the light

Each time I take Textures of Spurn to a different venue there are new challenges in presenting the work in a new space.  This is quite an interesting exercise and I learn something new every time.

At Gallery 49 I am sharing the space with other artists. There were decisions to be made about how to allow the work to sit alongside that of others and letting it compliment each other.  Stef’s beautiful botanical monoprints and Margaret’s ceramics tied in beautifully, picking up particularly on the seaweed collagraph elements in my work.

I took the opportunity to have some time by the sea, both at Bridlington and a little further up the coast at Filey.  Despite the persistent cold weather we’re having there was some beautiful sunshine and it was quite a wrench to tear myself away from the beach.  There were all sorts of intriguing marks in the bright white stones, some almost like stitches.

  1. Great group of work to show together, love how they all both contrast and compliment each other. And definitely looks different to see the blig cloth in a much smaller space, or so it seems from the photo – interesting in a different way. Have a great show!!
