The space between
This exhibition of work by Anne Griffiths was held at the Vale and Downland Museum in Wantage. She specialises in working with delicate fabrics embellished with transparent appliqué and with etched or laser cut Perspex. This work was based on the spaces between things. She says she is interested in the ambiguity that exists in the boundaries between the fibres in woven fabric. Her etched and laser cut pieces appealed to me most; I particularly liked the shadows they caused to fall on the wall behind them. The framing system she uses is similar to the Muji photo frames, but the four corner links are extended behind to ensure the work lies flat and evenly spaced from the wall, maintaining a flat area for the shadows. Two of the etched pieces were limited editions of 20.
