Show of the Week

Show of the week

Mythscapes is a major exhibition of a new body of work by Alice Kettle, one of Britain's leading textile artists whose machine- embroidered hangings are known for their remarkable painterly quality and poetic resonance. The show features a series of works which explore themes contained within Homer's Odyssey. In these figurative pieces she makes reference to universal ideas of hope, renewal and human concerns of existence. Both large and small-scale works illustrate her mastery of the materials and convey depth of emotion through an exceptional use of colour, line and composition.
