A while ago I painted bleach on some black fabric and it looked just like the wooden gates on many of the locks - so finally, I have made a quilt which is inspired by the canals. The rusted strip represents the gap between the gates, where the water leaks or gushes through.
Black fabric, bleached fabric and rusted fabric. The fabrics have been improvisionally pieced and then quilted by machine. I have managed to dove tail the abstract way I like to work with images that I love.
Looking forward to the exhibition - Chrisse
