While in the town of Lichfield on Saturday afternoon, I came across a small exhibition at the Emporium Gallery, showing the works of textile artist Jo Beattie. The work ‘visualises a fragment of a precious memory, it is a reflection on memories of people we love and how we associate them with what they wear. The unbounded and physical nature of Jo’s work enables a suspended image of a moment in a person’s life to occupy a space, leaving the shadow of a memory behind.’
I loved the use of colours, the patterns underneath the black stitched work, and the way the fragile illustrative lines made beautiful shadows on the wall. See the exhibition at the Emporium Gallery until November 3rd.
