Fenella Davies’s X marks the spot selected for SAQA’s Layered Voices, U.S.A.



Fenella Davies (UK) 


Statement

Abstract collage - what is buried underneath the layers of earth, soil & land. People's memories, their lives, their time on earth. This piece was dedicated to the extraordinary finding of the bones of King Richard III (1442-1485) under a carpark, in Leicester, England a few years ago. I like the idea of past lives coming to the surface and showing us their history. Once discovered, there has to be a means of finding the place again - hence the title - X Marks The Spot.

Techniques used

Hand stitched, self dyed & painted. surface stitchery.

Materials used

Cotton, linen, antique lace, Japanese matting, hessian.
