Image and Stitch is a collaboration between a photographer - Adrian James - and a textile artist -Allison James
Image & Stitch is a collaborative project between a photographer - Adrian James -and a textile artist - Allison James. It explores the different opportunities for creativity offered by each medium through a shared focus on a particular theme. Both the natural and built environments are sources of inspiration, providing the starting points for a series of visual conversations.
Colour, texture and shape are strong motivations in our individual work and come together in the visual conversations that this project represents: a photograph inspires a textile piece which is then photographed and a new textile work generated....
Adrian’s interests as a photographer span both urban and natural landscapes and he also has a particular interest in portraiture, both human and animal, and photography as art. In her textile work, Allison draws on a mix of techniques that include:hand and machine embroidery, felting and embellishing and hand and machine quilting.
