Made in Europe II - Margaret Ramsay

Margaret Ramsay
Birchington Breakwaters II

Disintegrating sea defences on the North Kent Coast interpreted using a section of a tattered antique Durham quilt. I find beauty  in the marks and textures of both structures, worn through exposure to the elements and constant use.

Machine stitching from back (perle threads in bobbin); raw-edged applique; painting  on gessoed surface with  application of acrylic paint washes and impasto techniques

Antique hand-stitched quilt; vintage and hand dyed fabrics; gesso and acrylic paints ( fluid and heavy body); cotton  threads.
