‘Coastline’

An exhibition of photos and textiles related to the theme of the coast, and the seashore.

Artist’s statement / biography

Influenced by the writing of Susan Sontag, I am drawn to the relationship between the theory and practise of art and design. By examining the world around us and observing how this translates through the lens of a camera, my work is based around photography, and constructed textiles, capturing the textured world.

Having studied Textile Design at Chelsea College of Art and Design, I have chosen to use photography and textiles as a medium for exploring the visual identity of texture.

Everyday objects, stillness and movement, the world inside and out have become themes central to my work.

‘On Photography’ by Susan Sontag. 1977.

‘From being ‘out there’, the world comes to be ‘inside’ photographs.’
