Fabric Collages

These fabric collages are based on drawings I collected whilst walking the perimeter of the Halley Stevensons textiles factory in Dundee, Scotland.

I’ve called them Industrial Dreams because, to me, a factory is a brilliant place of creation and production. 

The collages are made entirely from waxed cotton made by the factory; a mixture of standard fabric and fabric rejected by Quality Control for its dye faults (the beautiful swirling colours).

Each mounted on bamboo, Industrial Dreams reduces the factory building to basic geometric shapes and bold, earthy colours.

Sharp outlines, layering and a gentle weighing of colour exist in these collages, as they do in my paintings. In some ways, it’s still painting. But there is something more tactile about the way they are created.

The five fabric collages with be on show at my solo exhibition The Loom Runs. The Smoke Rises at The Meffan Museum & Art Gallery, Forfar.

32x37cm. £60 each.

Please get in touch if you’d like to reserve one.

The backs are quite beautiful too…
