Janet Gilbert

My current work explores themes and observations of the natural world whilst reflecting my concern about what the future may hold for the planet and everything living on it.  I research both the big picture and the tiny detail, by reading, sampling, and by working in my sketchbooks.  Whilst my work starts as concrete thoughts, the representation is always abstract - intertwining the visual memories, the history, the repetitions and patterns, the colours and textures to converge in textile based art work.

I build up layers by various forms of printing, painting, collage and stitch.  The repetition of marks is important to me, a visual reflection of the process of mark making and stitching, allowing my mind to wander in meditation.

Available for: talks, workshops, demonstrations and commissions
