“Tide” is part of a new collection of work that challenges me to explore the structure of tapestry and how it can be manipulated to represent my ideas: the ebb and flow of the tide, the oceans currents, whirlpools and maelstroms. These powerful bodies of water, that are constantly moving, constantly changing can be dangerous and unpredictable places, a possible metaphor for our current, political, cultural and ecological future. We must navigate with care.
