Jo Beattie – ‘Memories are those precious moments that tell our story’

Her work is a reflection on our own memories and also our shared past experiences expressed by ‘drawing with a sewing machine’. Shapes, textures, patterns and colours define us in a time, a place and a culture.

In the last few years the subject matter of her work has ranged from intimate scenes of everyday life to ‘Conversations’ within groups of people I have seen throughout my travels and more recently the discovery of the memories evoked by ‘Old Toys.’ I have been surprised by how emotional and important these can be.

Jo’s work uses shadow to reflect the image of our collective memories and identity. She has become interested in the way her artwork can enhance the idea of memory by having a shadow of the image reflected onto a plain background a distance away from the actual work. This enables the shadow to become larger and more defined. The work is produced in any way that best creates the atmosphere she is trying to evoke.

Jo Beattie predominantly uses a machine stitch with see-through backgrounds such as wire mesh and Perspex to allow shadows to become an integral part of the work.

Memories are those precious moments that tell our story

Jo Beattie

We were so keen to launch our Artist Directory we have decided to launch the first phase in advance of the costing and portfolio generation section.

In this first phase we have included a diverse selection of artists we collaborate with.

Over the coming months this selection will continue to grow eventually to include all of our artists.

In the near future our artwork selection, frame visualisation and costing database will come on-line.

This will allow the selection of artworks and frames, see a visualisation of the framed artwork and include this in a portfolio for purchase.

    Anita Carnell

    Anita Carnell was born in the North of England. She has had a long career in textiles, receiving her initial training at the Royal School of Needlework and then her masters of MA Designer Maker at Camberwell College of Art.

    Working with British historical materials, gilded wires and gold, Anita uses traditional hand embroidery techniques on lamb hide. Her method is an unconscious abstract process, unplanned and unrehearsed. Her inspirations are influenced by the Japanese term Yohaku-no-bi, which translate to ‘blankness.’

    Anita Carnell seeks to evoke contemplation as evident in her piece, ‘Cycle of Time’. The circle becomes the spiral, shadows reflecting repetitive mark making in red. Anita intends her work to recognise the beauty of gold, not just for its monetary value but the tonal and light refracting qualities it conveys.  Gold creates shadows – ‘without shadows there is no beauty’.

    Her work is a doorway to interrelationships between materials, viewer and space.

      Michelle House

      Michelle House is an abstract artist with over 20 year’s experience creating unique textile artworks and digital art prints. Her inspiration comes from the patterns and geometry within architecture. As well as the physical mixing and layering of colours, the texture of cloth and the print process.

      Michelle House moved from painting and collage on paper to applying the same approach with textiles. Taking photographs and making drawings, she then edits and designs on a computer, before transferring her photographic images to silkscreens.

      Michelle uses screens in conjunction with hand-cut stencils as a palette from which to select and build up her final composition. Using imagery and colour in an abstract way to create focal points, balance and space.

      The dye’s and pigments, in combinations of transparent and opaque layers, are screen-printed and painted on to differently textured fabrics, which are then meticulously sewn together to make a single piece, or series of related works.
