This is the latest piece made for the exhibition at Weavers Gallery, Ledbury, in conjunction with the Ledbury Poetry Festival. www.poetry-festival.co.uk/
The brief this year was the poetry of the Malvern Hills.
I pieced this, then appliquéd it on to a cotton canvas background, then added some words from William Langland's vision in Piers Plowman, probably written in 1300's.
"Ac on a May morwenynge on Malverne Hilles
Me befel a ferly, of Fairye me thoghte"
But on a May morning on Malvern Hills
I experienced a wonder, come from Fairy-power.
I researched a bit about the Geology of the hills, some of the most ancient rocks and constructed a geological map using rusted cotton, linens and wool.
I've tried to keep this piece understated and simple in an attempt to reflect the Medieval aspect.
