Momentum: Dionne Swift
I work at speed, I travel at speed…the pace and momentum of life pushes me onwards to new discoveries and experiences.
This exhibition explores moments in time, captured during lengthy, laborious road trips : observed and drawn in haste with adrenaline and angst then held in time with thread and cloth…re-living and regurgitating the energy of that moment through the mediative rhythm of the stitches.
The spontaneous quality of the drawn mark offers a refreshing surface and vivacious composition to inspired tactile artworks; using this instinctive response, my work is elevated beyond representational mark making.
