TAFA: The Textile and Fiber Art List

Barbara Shaw – Art in Textiles – Aylesbury, Buckinghamshire, United Kingdom

Art in Textiles

I create art in textiles by hand-stitching many scraps of fabric together in layers to produce unique collages. I include a range of different materials such as lace, chiffon, silk, patterned cotton, tweed and sparkly pieces so that the final artwork is highly textured in rich and subtle colours with glints of light. The viewer is encouraged to look afresh at familiar images -from a distance the pictures look like paintings and close up all the detail of the threads and construction can be seen.

Living near to the Chiltern Hills and the Cotswolds, I am inspired by the beautiful rolling countryside and the flora and fauna which inhabit it. I particularly enjoy stitching landscapes, flowers and sheep but have also interpreted buildings, still lives, museum artefacts and portraits. I have been influenced by Impressionist painters such as Claude Monet, the range of colours and patterns which sing together in Kaffe Fassett’s creations and the use of lustrous effects in Gustav Klimt’s pictures.

Recently I have enjoyed the challenge of exploring how to convey a message: in 2016 one of my pictures was displayed in Parliament as part of an exhibition to raise awareness of child mental health and to influence policy making. I am continuing to make new work related to this theme.

In the future I would like to expand the subjects that I tackle and, by so doing, raise the interest in textiles as an art form as well as a craft. I would also welcome opportunities for exhibiting my work further afield as well as writing features for journals and magazines.

Self taught, I first exhibited in 2002. From early experiments with glue and using off-cuts from making patchwork quilts, I have developed a more sophisticated method of working and an artist’s trained eye for colour, shape and composition. I have been Artist-in-Residence at National Trust properties Chastleton House and Claydon House and my work has been exhibited at events, galleries and museums in the south of England. In 2016 pictures on an Arctic theme were displayed in the Oxford Museum of Natural History and a piece of work was in an exhibition in Parliament; artwork was bought for the Oxfordshire County Museum collections and images were included in exhibitions in the Corinium Museum, Cirencester and the Bucks County Museum, Aylesbury. My collages have been featured in various national and international publications including: ‘Filzfun’ ; ‘The Leisure Painter’ ,’ Be Creative with Workbox’ ; Textile Fibre Forum ; Craft and Design ; Fiber Art Now .

Thank you very much Stephanie. Apologies for the late reply but I have just found your message..

Love your work. I am an art quilter living in California but originally born in Scotland. I will be visiting your website and hope on my next visit to see your work wherever it is exhibited.

Your use of color and texture is intriguing, just wonderful. I need to explore texture more in my art quilts and your work is encouraging. Do you give classes? I belong to the Mountain Art Quilters in Grass Valley, California and a local Guild in Folsom where I live.
