Kingfisher Series, 2017 & 2018
Studies capturing the moment the Kingfisher emerges from the shadows of the tree canopy. An unexpected explosion of colour, movement and line - a memory of flashes of delightful, intense colour.
Artwork is developed through a process of collaging fabrics and fibres together in a painterly way and using a needle punch machine to blend the layers into one textile. Colour and texture are built into the artwork through layering, creating an intriguing depth to the finished artwork, with layers responding to each other in an interplay of light, shadow and movement. A captured moment.
