The City – More Artist InspirationPosted: February 6, 2015
I started looking more at ways in which textile artist show the figure in their work.
Alice Kettle has always been a favourite artist of mine so I am happy to be able to use her as a reference for my own work. Her images of the human figure are quite surreal and she uses a collage of appliqué in a variety if different textures and thicknesses of fabrics.
“The images are drawing based from photography used in newspapers.”
Sophie Strong predominantly uses black and other dark threads.
I love the unusual face shape Cathy Cullis uses in her pieces. It is also a good reference if I want to do more on crowds.
