Painterly threaads.

In researching for yesterday's post I saw the name of UK artist Alice Kettle mentioned and looked her up. Alice makes extremely texturally lovely thread paintings. They must be called paintings because of her expressive painterly style executed in how she works with thread and fibers.

Her images seem to explore the deep and complicated experience of human nature.
She states:

The work does seem to strongly speak to myth and ever present truths in the myths that survive to our lifetimes. The truths of human nature and human existence.
Often Alice's work is of quite ambitious scale and I can imagine how much more powerful the work feels in the actual presence of the size and detail of the work.

To see more of Alice's work go here.
