the light the hope

Lake - indigo dyed and hand stitched quilt on left.
The Light of the Moon - acrylic, thread, paper and cotton wall piece on right.
Before I delivered my work to Shannon at the Perivale Gallery earlier this month, I re-read the journal text in the stitched paper collage.
The darkness will always be there but you can see the light of the moon as hope.
 
I am showing three pieces at the Perivale Gallery this year.
Left to right:  Duet, Lake and Light of the Moon.
Ivan Wheale will be in attendance at the opening on May 17.  I hope that it will be well attended.

Do you have more images of 'Duet' Judy? I haven't seen that one before, is it on paper? is it painted or stitched? such a beautiful trio, did you take photos of the work in situ?

Judy Martin said...

Thank you Mo for your compliment.
To answer questions:
duet is embroidery on vintage table runner that is mounted with stitch on watercolour paper.
No photos of work installed in gallery yet.
I have put direct links to more images into the post now.

I agree with Mo - these are all stunning! And they have set my hands in a whir with ideas. Now I'm more excited than ever to get back up the mountain and into The Dissenter's Chapel & Snug and get to work! So thank you for the beauty you unleash into the world, and thank you for the inspiration you enkindle. x

Beautiful work. The tenderness of "Lake" flows through.

Thank you for the last post too. Enjoyed the intelligence within--as always here.
