I am delighted to announce the opening of the MA Fine Art Exhibition Bedazzled 10 to 18 September 2019. Private View 11 September 2019 6-8 pm. Artone the University of Chichester. Do come along and see mine and other artists latest work.
So during the summer we get access to the studio spaces, which means we can experiment with our work and try out new things.
I have been recently using my MRI images to inspire my work. These have mostly been fairly small pieces.
I have been exploring going bigger, making a piece that is life-size.
When I visited the National Amyloidosis Centre in November 2017 I was able to obtain some images of the Amyloids in my kidneys. This has led to a number of pieces of work based on these images.
The first pieces copied the microscopic image on the left, kidney amyloids 1. Fabric was collaged onto transfer dyed felt using an embellisher. Hand embroidery was used to emphasise the amyloids.
Then I used a portion of the image on the right kidney amyloids 2 to create these pieces of work which show an individual amyloid in the glomerulus of my kidney.
Amyloid 1 was made using printed layers of chiffon which were cut to expose lower layers. The piece was embellished and stitched.
Amyloid 2 was made from cotton printed with an ink jet printer. Reverse appliqué techniques and embroidery were used to highlight parts of the image
