A nice mix of collage and embroidery by artist Rhed Fawell, currently based in Edinburgh, Scotland. Drawing on her own personal experience as well as the ever-shifting trends of the world at large, Fawell’s multi-layered images draw on social issues both past and present, like the tension between nature and machinery, and the instability that arises when long-established certainties are called into question. As she explains:
“I am interested in exploring the hidden and murky sides of life, yet attempting to maintain a poetic quality. Every element that is placed has a symbolic purpose in relation to the whole. At times my work may appear dark, but I always strive to include a sense of hope.”
