Back on Track

With Ledbury Poetry Festival now underway my  attention has reverted to  Herefordshire Art Week (September 7 – 15th 2019) and my exhibition with fellow Quartet members  Amanda Wright, Jill Exell and Cheryl Kirby. First on today’s agenda was to turn some little mixed media landscapes into art cards.

Ledbury Poetry Festival 2019

As in previous years I was invited to create a piece of textile work to show in conjunction with Weavers Gallery’s textile exhibition, held during Ledbury Poetry Festival. The theme this year is T.S.Eliot’s poems collectively know as the Four Quartets.

Inspired by the common premise that each one of Eliot’s Four Quartets poems corresponds to one of the four classical elements:

  • Burnt Norton – Air
  • East Coker – Earth
  • The Dry Savages – Water
  • Little Gidding – Fire

Elements

‘Elements’ is my interpretation of the poems. Each piece consists of  hand dyed machine appliquéd silks and needle felted wools.
