Textile Exhibition at Sara Preisler Gallery
Corinne Phillips – Fairy Tale Maker.
Storytelling is an important element of Corinne’s practice where the love of creation is illuminated with illustration through textiles and found objects.
With a nostalgia for childhood, Victorian inventions and gadgets, it seems that she is always on the hunt for unusual objects that can be used in the work.
Through use of hand and machine embroidery, the sewing machine itself has been used as a drawing tool. Her fascination for fairytales leaves this small collection of pieces a delight to see.
The exhibition runs from the 2nd June till 3oth July 2012
