Ro2 Art Gallery presents Natalie Sirrett: "Kevin, Wishes and Charms" opening reception
Ro2 Art will present "Kevin, Wishes & Charms," a solo exhibition featuring new works by artist Natalie Sirett.
Sirett is a British artist trained in academic painting and printmaking. Her newest body of work is informed by the survival of her own body, now in remission after undergoing 10 months of treatment for cancer. Sirett hand embroidered over 50 antique handkerchiefs as she processed coming to terms with her own mortality.
The intimacy of these textiles; square patches of fabric that hold joy, uncertainty, sadness, loss, happiness and hope, are a compelling choice of substrate for the artist’s words to exist on. The images take shape on a background of memory, pierced, looped, and needle-worked into Sirett’s compositions. These fiber art pieces, as well as several assemblage sculptures have never before been exhibited.
The exhibition will remain on display through May 15.
