RDS Knit and Stitch Show, Dublin, November 2012

My first visit to the RDS Knit and Stitch Show,

a mixture of recent graduates, collectives and international artists work.

I was very happy to see a lot of work along the ‘post-natural’ theme, a theme that I connect with a lot within my work.

The ‘found’ natural material that composed the main body of these chicken-bone creatures below, and the ‘natural’ shoe, allow for the viewer to make their own connection with the piece, considering the array of memories and emotions that can be summoned by these kind of common natural objects.

Also some very impressive textiles from the University of Ulster, this multi-layered close up was created by a textile art, design and fashion student.
