AboutAnnie Whiles will be bringing together woodcarving and embroidery in her solo show in April 2011. The work negotiates an embedded history of an ecclesiastic language and a personal mythology that references iconic biblical imagery.
Whiles restages encounters, that threaten to unravel a day to day agnostic rationale. These have developed almost as âtest cards' (the static imagery offered in between television programming in the seventies).
The starting point for this collection of work is a drawing that Whiles made ten years ago, after thinking she saw a donkey smile at her on Blackheath common.
