The Woven Landscape: Tapestries & Drawings

Wed 29/03/17 11:00 AM - 4:00 PM

An exhibition of Tapestries and drawings by Justine Randall, the exhibition includes The Wiltshire Landscape Tapestries which were shortlisted for The Cordis Prize for Tapestry 2016 (shown at The Royal Scottish Academy, The Mound, Edinburgh in
February 2016)

A series of tapestries based on the colours of rural landscape in Wiltshire. There are four tapestries in total and each tapestry represents a season. Concentrating on a five mile radius of Wiltshire ( around Sutton Mandeville and Sutton Row ) when producing this work, she documented the common crops grown, the flowers, hedgerows, and vegetation, by photographing the seasons, both early and late, she chose 60 colours that represented that season best. In this way she describes in colour the entire three months with one piece of work.

Randall’s work celebrates colour and landscape and the transformation that occurs due to changes in light, seasons and events. Tapestry is the perfect medium for expressing colour relationships, as it is a tactile, responsive and textural medium.
She has exhibited work at Themes & Variations Gallery in London, North Modern in Copenhagen, Denmark and at Untergroningen, Germany.

Hampshire County Museum and Bupa have her work in their collections.
