From the artist:
Sheffield Park (after Adrian Berg) was a result of my assisting on Outside In Step Up Exploring Collections course at Pallant House Gallery. The artists were researching landscape works from the collection. One of the works was by Adrian Berg and I decided to use his painting of Sheffield Park as a starting point for a weaving. The colour palette was quite challenging as it is a lot brighter than I would normally use so it pushed me out of my comfort zone. I already had a base weaving on a frame and so added the Sheffield Park scene by needle weaving the yarns in. The weaving is quite loose compared to tapestry weaving and it is quicker to build up the shapes and textures. I used many different yarns to give visual impact and try to represent the fluidity of brush strokes.
