the art of textile
off the back of yesterday's post while i was looking for images for kate daudy i came across this rather excellent article on stitching. lorina bulwer (above) is worth a look on her own. it's always interesting to speculate on why or how a certain type of art may be neglected or sidelined, certainly with textile there's plenty to work with both in terms of gender and class (this latter ex in terms of male textile workers - work now almost erased from popular knowledge).
but aside from all that it's a great opportunity to dip a toe into a field that's alive with skill and an underground, subversive quality
