Thinking of everyone who like me is in lockdown mode -but I am luckier than most as it means I can hide in my studio all day and create some new work. My most recent piece is Geisha in a Stone Garden- currently in Australia for an exhibition entitled Opposites Attract but I dont know when it will eventually open.I wanted to show the contrast between the gorgeous colours and curves of the geisha’s kimono and the raked stone grey Japanese gardens with their linear lines. I like the contrast between the smooth edge pieced quilted cotton and silk fabric (some hand dyed and screen printed by myself, some antique japanese kimono silk) in the kimono and the rough edge applique of the garden.
