Meeting Textile Artist Susan Shafrir at her exhibition in Chichester.

14th May 2018

Yesterday I went to see an exhibition in Chichester by Susan Shafrir on the theme Bioethics.....


... Susan, an online textile artist friend, had been commissioned by UNESCO to produce textiles on the theme Bioethics for an exhibition at their next congress meeting in Jerusalem.....

....she explained to me that she was given the theme then had to research material she could use as a base for her mixed media textiles which would provoke discussion and debate....








































































































































......the red script are the questions Susan asked herself as she was working......

....these photos do not do her work justice, so much wonderful detail in the stitch, both hand and machine embroidery and also the choice of fabrics, a very talented lady!

So glad I went to this exhibition, very thought provoking.....
