Bury St Edmunds Abbey

One of the themes for the Out Of The Fold exhibition to be shown in May 2020 was work inspired by Bury St Edmunds Abbey which was founded 1000 years ago. The May exhibition is now postponed.

We still hope to hold the exhibition later in 2020 or Spring 2021. So I will not show my whole piece but here is just a tiny section. The idea behind the work is a base layer stitched with the plan of the original Abbey and grounds as it was before dissolution (taken from a historic document)  with an overlay of the same area as it is now (taken from Google Earth).

Bury Abbey (detail)
Some new techniques for me and more representational than my usual abstract style - but I enjoyed making the piece
