Artists Kevin Laycock and Christopher Harris reinterpret historic quilt making through abstract painting and mixed media artworks. The exhibition also showcases examples of British 19th century quilt making and the artists’ responses to the patterns and structures contained within them.
Gawthorpe Textiles Collection provided the touchstone for Harris and Laycock’s latest work. Housed at the National Trust’s Gawthorpe Hall, the collection includes over 11,000 items of textile history.
Our thanks are due to curator Rachel Midgley for her help in selecting and preparing work from the Gawthorpe Textile Collection for display.
