I like :
old bill board posters peeling, printed digitised images
Layers and stitching
So going to see Zoe Gibbons work (at the Bristol Framing Factory and Art Warehouse on Wapping Wharf in Bristol) was interesting today. I saw the flyer at the tourist information office and thought ooooo.
The images are made up of lots of different old bill board posters so you see the digitised image patterns within the designs
The work is freehand machine stitched sometimes with plain fabric and she uses black cotton for small details. Zoe has an has a eye for perspective and picked images and landmarks from around Bristol.
‘but not used the most obvious view points’ – (according to the lady at the wharf side gallery) . It made me think about doing something similar using hand stitching, and my tea bags for buildings around Edinburgh.
My favourite piece was
I love the circle ( no? You don’t believe me?)
The exhibition is on from 20th July to 31August 2018. You can see more of Zoe’s work on her Instagram page zoegibbonsstudio and she has an Etsy shop and website
