Re-Tellings – Sue Stone
ARTSPACE, | 14/09/2019 : 20/10/2019
Re-Tellings is a solo exhibition by Grimsby-based artist Sue Stone whose work is inspired by people, place and time. Hand embroidery plays a big part in Sue’s work sometimes mixed with machine stitch and/or paint and there are also some digital prints and new iPad drawings. The pieces in this exhibition are part of an ongoing series of narratives inspired by memories; both the artist’s own and those of others. Members of the public were invited to take part by sharing memories of themselves and their relationships in the form of anecdotes, and images and Sue has now collected stories from all over the world. The common link in this particular selection of work is that of family and friendship. Many of the stories focus on relationships between family members; the bonds between siblings and cousins, mothers and daughters, grandparents and grandchildren. But there are also tales of imagined journeys and that illusive dream of a Desert Island. Then there’s the epic chronicle of the artist’s own life story told in a series of self-portraits one for each year of the artist’s life so far. 3 new self-portraits bring the installation up to date. Sue Stone is an exhibiting member and former Chair (2013 - 2018) of the internationally renowned 62 Group of Textile Artists and a Fellow of the Uk Society of Designer Craftsmen. Since 2006 her work has been exhibited widely throughout the UK and Europe, and in Japan, Pakistan and the USA.
