Jemma Corbin: Colour Field
In the Mezzanine Gallery
Contemporary textiles and a history of natural colour.
Colour Field showcases the work of textile artist Jemma Corbin, and explores how plants are central to her artistic practice. It also looks at the wider use, cultivation and movement of natural dyes throughout history.
Jemma’s collection of minimalist quilts and cushions re-imagines the work of a group of mid-20th Century abstract painters whose bold, colourful work would become known as ‘Colour Field’ painting.
Using pigments sourced from field and forest, natural fibres and traditional craft processes, Jemma seeks to blur the line between fine art and function; her work is sumptuous, tactile and designed to be used and loved.
Saturday 28 March, 2.30pm – 4pm
In the Mezzanine
