Journeys the Silk Road and beyond: Judy Hooworth

Exhibition explores journeys: the Silk Road and beyond


Renowned textile artist Judy Hooworth draws on her travels tracing the ancient Silk Road, through China, Central Asia and Europe, for the rich and exotic works in her new exhibition, opening at Newcastle’s Timeless Textiles Gallery in February.


The exhibition, Journeys: the Silk Road and beyond, features evocative quilted textiles that explore the rich diversity of texture, pattern and colour experienced by the artist on her journeys.

Hooworth was fascinated by marks made by the individual hands of artisans that she discovered on walls and doorways, carvings, tiles, embroideries and even in contemporary graffiti. Her photographs of these small details inspired each composition. She draws, mono prints, discharges and paints fabrics, continuing a tradition of spontaneous mark-making while interpreting in her own style.


The resulting works will transport the viewer on their own journey of discovery to different cultures.
