Artist: Rieteka Guersen
At Timeless Textiles.
Medium: Japanese Tengoshi paper, fabric and thread on Chinese scroll paper
Perhaps one of the sweetest exhibitions I’ve seen for a while is now happening at Timeless Textiles. A collection of thread drawings capture the innocence of childhood with captivating clarity. The process can be identified as a sketchbook shows the initial rapid drawings used for the final works.
The artist Rieteka Guersen has allowed a peek into her family life, and suffuses the images with maternal love and warmth. It’s a delicate peaceful exhibition, one depicting the importance of the family for solidity and harmony that is so often dismissed as just an interruption to more important careers. Parenthood may be a burden to economic sensibilities but this exhibition highlights the essential qualities required for a caring society. “that’s my baby” shows until 13th March 2016.
