Exhibition Announcement – Jan Clark
If you find insects irritating or cringe at the idea of a swarm of them, perhaps a new exhibition by textile artist Jan Clark, opening next month at Newcastle’s Timeless Textiles Gallery, will change your mind.
The Beautiful Swarm exhibition, Jan’s third at Timeless Textiles, brings the glory of nature to life in a sea of colour.
Clark sees a swarm of insects as evidence of the abundance of life. For her it is life affirming and startles her with the brilliance of colour, texture and movement. Her exhibition seeks to capture and celebrate this display. She draws on this resource for the textiles in this latest exhibition.
