I decided to use my unplanned trip to an exhibition of work by William Morris and Andy Warhol as a starting point for these 2 small pieces of embroidery. The exhibition, Love is Enough, at Modern Art Oxford seemed at first an odd mix, but on looking more deeply there are similarities between the working methods of Warhol and Morris, e.g. in producing work via a factory system. You can read more about this on Modern Art Oxford‘s website or you can go and see the exhibition at Birmingham Museum and Art Gallery over the summer. I used a similar process to the previous two pieces, using a patched and pieced frame, appliqué, machine and hand embroidery techniques. Instead of the free hand stitching, I decided to incorporate some weaving over the flowers. It’s a satisfying process and adds texture in a different way.
