Christine Druitt Preston

A flight of fancy (with a nod to Henri) , 2021. (Framed)


Mixed media on vintage textile

72x72cm. Framed (White)

‘My practice of reworking found vintage domestic textiles serves to acknowledge the original makers on whose shoulders I stand and to give their work a second life. This work combines two found pieces with fragments of lino block print, tulle and added embroidery in a fanciful willow pattern inspired landscape visited by Matisse bathers.’ ~ Christine Druitt Preston 2022.
