Jilly Edwards: Glimpses and memories

19th January - 17th March

Jilly Edwards’ tapestries use combinations of cotton, wool and linen yarns. Jilly says while her surroundings are the starting point for her work “It’s more the thoughts and memories that these places evoke, not the initial representation but my response.”

The tapestries in the exhibition are particularly inspired by glimpses and memories of journeys from Exeter to Edinburgh and to East Anglia, through diverse terrain and especially the colours of the oilseed rape. “My work is about the surface, its depth, its construction, the quiet, crisp whites, the dense warm yellow, sensuous dark soil with lozenge shaped stone walls with bright yellow lichen patches. The spaces are important, as are the gaps between.” Jilly Edwards
