Emma Riley – Arboreal Series (2013)
Arboreal Sun II (2013), cotton, portland wool, natural dyes, found objects.
Throughout 2013 I have been making work inspired by time and
place. A sense of place is important. The very process of making
is equally important. Using a process based on textile eco printing
I have used natural dyes, foraged plants, found objects and time
to create large-scale pieces. In the Arboreal Series (2013) I have
utilised media foraged and harvested from within a 5-mile radius
of my studio. Since being awarded a b-side research bursary in
October 2013 I am expanding my work to incorporate larger works
exploring new site-specific environments.
Emma will be showing a number of works from the Arboreal Series (2013) upstairs at Inn the Square (Church Street, West Coker, Somerset. BA22 9BD) from 18 December until 20 March 2014
