A solo exhibition of Sue Stone’s major hand and machine stitched textile works 2012 to 2016 also including a rare outing for ‘Woman with a Fish’ a seminal piece made in 2009

About

Sue Stone is a Lincolnshire based artist/maker who is best known for textural, figurative compositions that often feature a fish. With its emphasis on hand embroidery often combined with machine stitch and paint Sue’s work is often described as very personal. “I make work about what I have experienced and how it has affected me; my relationships, my environment and my life observations but once the work is finished I can let it go” she has said. “The process of making the work is cathartic”

Disparate images from the past merge with those from the present to connect people, place and time leaving the viewer to complete the partial narrative.  

Sue Stone is current chair of the 62 Group of Textile Artists and a Fellow of the Society of Designer Craftsmen. Sue studied Embroidery at Goldsmiths College in London and has exhibited widely across the UK, and abroad, and has featured in several textile publications and books.
