An Urban Spirit
28 February 9 APRIL
Carolyn’s work predominantly involves stitching onto paper.
Having lived all over the world as a child, Carolyn is inspired by images of urban landscapes, and her work concerns creating artwork using watercolour and layering the architectural forms by repetitive stitching onto paper.
Through sewing, Carolyn’s images are built up from a series of quick and impulsive responses, evoking the urban spirit of a place and time,with layering of personal marking.
All the images Carolyn creates start from visits to various places, where she takes photos and sketches the images that appeal, captivating the atmosphere and scenery. At first glance her work appears as a pen and ink drawing free in style - a closer look reveals the loose threads and stitching.
