‘Hush’ the quiet nature of the area, in terms of population, gentle sounds of wildlife, a feeling of tranquility, sheltered bays and inlets, peaceful contemplation.
‘Hush’ soft, warm, natural wool with a thickness and texture which absorbs sound, reminiscent of grass or moss underfoot absorbing footsteps.
The artworks being exhibited are constructed using natural Scottish textiles, cut and stitched using hand and free machine embroidery. Taking inspiration from maps, charts and scientific diagrams, the works will invite the viewer to ask questions of the landscape, create a deeper understanding and connection to place.
