Textiles in Colour and Contrast

Textiles in Colour and Contrast 

30 November - 23 December | Vancouver Arts Centre

An exhibition by Anne Cochrane Fibre Artist

This exhibition is a sometimes colourful, sometimes muted, display of textiles in various forms and shapes. Pieces are predominantly 2-D created from paper, silk and other fabrics and wool felt. A number of items have incorporated pieces of recycled blankets from the old Albany Woollen Mills. The patterns are held together by colour and stitching. Aesthetically pleasing contrasting colours are sometimes very striking aiming to attract the viewers’ attention by a sheer force of difference. On the other hand, the analogous colours of the botanically dyed and printed pieces often blend into each other providing a more subtle look. Stitching has been used for mark making to accentuate certain parts of the textile thereby enhancing the printed design.

The exhibition features recent works as well as showcasing a range of pieces made whilst I was a student at Albany TAFE. Each piece is unique and represents a celebration of my love of textiles. 

Gallery open Monday - Friday 10am - 4pm
