Featured Maker: Stephen Hughes

  • 8 July — 21 October 2017 *on now

Approaches familiar to fine art studio practices are often employed to create a range of abstract fabrics. His distinctive designs are hand drawn and painted and later digitally printed on wools and silks in the UK. The printed fabric laden with expressive marks at varying scales aim to capitalise on the crossovers between high art and commercial fashion when worn. His ‘Imbalance’ collection explores four key design ideas that also reflect a personal interest in developing social and political culture.
Stephen lives and works in South West Wales.

A Darker Thread Exhibition

  • 15 July — 21 October 2017 *on now

Wales has a much celebrated tradition of creating both utilitarian and decorative textiles of distinctive design. From power-loomed blankets to hand-stitched quilts, textiles are a key part of Welsh visual culture and history.

Whilst ‘A Darker Thread’ takes this heritage as its starting point, twelve contemporary artists, designers and makers have been invited to exhibit work which subverts these expectations.

Exhibitors have been selected for their challenging, confrontational or unpredictable approach to making thoroughly contemporary work which confidently cross boundaries of art, design and craft. A variety of making processes are exemplified, but all make use of thread in some form.

The curious, provocative, intense, fragile works explore broad-ranging themes of empowerment, loss, language, internal landscapes, memory and gender to name but a few. Some work might still feel comfortably familiar through its materiality or typically ‘Welsh’ colour palette of black, ecru and red; much hopefully, does not.

Curated by Laura Thomas.

Exhibitors: Alana Tyson, Eleri Mills, Indre Eugenija Dunn, Jayne Pierson in collaboration with Neale Howells, Laura Thomas, Llio James, Philippa Lawrence, Rhiannon Williams, Rozanne Hawksley, Ruth Harries, Sally-Ann Parker and Spike Dennis.
