Artists in residence talks

The three artists in residence in the Farnham, UCA, Textile Department each gave a short talk about their work on 7 October. Rosie James showed us the work based on Minimalism she had done for her MA and then described the commissions she has been working on recently incorporating scanned and embroidered figures. The picture above shows one of Rosie’s pieces in a showcase at Farnham, UCA, she also has a very interesting blog. Rhian Solomon showed us her MA work based on body image incorporating knitted wire and the use of pressure belts on skin. She also showed us more recent work involving skin and laser etching on egg shells. Zoe Acketts showed us the woven textiles she produced for her MA and explained that she is continuing that work to produce a line of furnishing fabrics.
