Textile artist offers [Insert Here] show

Award-winning Oak Bay artist Susan Purney Mark’s new solo show is called [Insert Here] Textile Art Inspired by Structure

Award-winning Oak Bay artist Susan Purney Mark’s new solo show is called [Insert Here] Textile Art Inspired by Structure.

Her series focuses on abstract interpretations of structures designed over the past three years.

“[Insert Here] really is the title of my show,” says Purney Mark.

“It is meant in part to explain my technique of assembling the fabric. All the fabric in my work begins as white or black, and I apply colour and marks by dyeing, painting or screen printing, she says.

“It’s about building up layers of texture and pattern on the fabric and using it just as an artist uses any other medium.”
