From the artist:
Pells Fog was woven to re-create a memory of walking home late one night, passing the Pells pond in Lewes. The mist was rising from the water and was illuminated by a street light, swirling about a birch branch. The almost-magical sight on a cold, damp night allayed fears of walking alone, alert to external sounds and aware of my own heart beat and thoughts. Materials include horsehair, nylon, viscose and cotton. As well as traditional tapestry weave, I like to work in a more open weave style, inspired by one of Tadek Beutlich’s techniques. This creates different effects of light, colour and texture requiring a more textural combination of yarns. The technique also allows for the creation larger pieces more spontaneously.
