embroidery inspired by a Lowry quote, on vintage blanket with a laundry tag
The other week I went into London and saw the Lowry exhibition at Tate Britain. It was the first time I’d actually seen his work and was struck by how monochrome, bleak and repetitive his paintings are, as I’m sure everyone is.
Lowry was a rent collector and his paintings show the world he lived and worked in. What he saw and how he felt all there on the canvas, over and over again.
Stepping outside the gallery my world seemed very vibrant, positive and teeming with opportunity.
