These images are of work I have been invited to exhibit at the Newark Museum in an exhibition of work by the Arts Workshop Instructors.
The knitting is an improvisational work using the technique of intarsia and worked in seed stitch, giving an almost reversible look to the fabric and a non-specific edge to the lines of the bold graphic free-form image. An on-going work (as opposed to unfinished….), the yarn balls are still attached and find their place, nestled in a hand-carved bowl from Mauritania, which rests atop another piece of knitted intarsia… this one using recycled plastic bags and worked in garter stitch.
