November Artwork of the Month


Scion: contemporary art at Barrington Court This is an ongoing series of embroidered text drawings taken from a series of inspirational quotes emailed to the artist weekly from a life coaching website. These delicately laboured objects reference needlepoint projects traditionally given in women's magazines. Their particular detail illuminates the process of endeavour for self-improvement as a domesticated female. Underpinning the work is a desire to look beyond the surface of objects and buildings, to uncover forgotten and invisible histories of places and people. The domesticated nature of the artwork invites us to reflect on the role of women within the history of Barrington Court where the evidence of meticulous male labour and workmanship in the panelling is so evident.
