Now: Visual Poetry – the art of Cherilyn Martin 8th of May -19th of June 2022
Statement Cherilyn Martin
In recent years Cherilyn’s work has become more introspective.
Previously known for her richly embroidered pieces and experimental use of techniques and materials, Cherilyn has chosen to follow a more minimalistic approach.
She now uses recycled paper and old/antique textiles in order to give new life to these discarded materials.
Materials which contain memory and history of their own and which have their own stories to tell.
She selects poignant texts to bring into sharp relief the themes that underpin her work; strung together in a deliberate visual game to present a challenge to the viewer.
Concepts such as loss, commemoration and emotion strengthen her autonomous art work
Her colour palette is subdued and combined with meditative ‘slow stitching’ an intimacy is created between the object, the viewer and the maker.
