Changing Shorelines

Information


Alison Olorunsola

Gallery 2

12 - 25 September
The artist is fascinated by shorelines and the changes due to weather, tides, time of day and erosion. This exhibition includes work on the crumbling and collapsing of chalk cliffs and a series based on the rock strata due to erosion at Pett Level. She had included work from her ‘white series’ where she has been exploring the phenomenon of constantly changing skies and seas, enabling her to work completely in white, relying on texture to describe the scene.

She sees herself as a painter but has chosen to work with textiles: felt, using both wet felting and needlefelting, textile collage often combined with acrylic, and photolamination onto cloth. She will be demonstrating throughout and there will be one hour workshops, £10 each:

Thursday 13 September: Carding wool using hand carders and
a drum carder

Friday 14 September: Wet felting using embellishments

Monday 17 September: Needlefelting a small landscape

Tuesday 18 September: Photo lamination onto cloth

Wednesday 19 September: Carding wool using hand carders

Thursday 20 September: Wet felting using embellishments
