Paula Reason

Textile Artist & Architect

Talking Spaces

Through Textile Art, Paula investigates how the spaces we live in reflect who we are. Paula builds on her background as an architect to explore, through textiles, the relationship that we have with the spaces we occupy.

Her articulate drawings are translated into hand-machine stitched 3-dimensional sculptural pieces, each revealing stories of their occupiers.

 

Using a quilted base for this work, a layer of raw silk on top of a cotton wadding with a canvas backing helps to define and shape the line, strengthening the evocative connotations of her work.

Talking Spaces reveals what it is like to live a life in craft with a look inside the creative spaces of three established studios.

Nurture - Kate Fedden An established studio

Renewal - Michael Brennand-Wood A lost studio

Legacy - Diana Springall A domestic setting

“Our surroundings, at their best, are like a comfort blanket to our lives” Paula Reason
