FENELLA DAVIES

c.v. & exhibitions

 


My work is designed to give a sense of place and mood, but with paring down to a simple design element - the relationship of form and colour.  I like to utilise to the full the medium in which I work - rough linen fabrics, raw & torn edges, visible stitches - and combine this with an overlay of dyes and paints, flashing, and paper. 

Implications of the past are a recurring theme - the traces of people, their history and places. The use of antique linens, cottons and old lace give a connection to the past and my work.  Our history - the marks we leave behind us, who we were and what we achieved - make us the people we are today.
