Breaking the traditional boundaries of craft, Stewart Easton’s latest work fuses together hand embroidery, sonic art, music and illustration.
We are delighted to be exhibiting Stewart's latest work, with a special evening view on Thursday January 21st, from 6 - 8.30 pm We'd love you to join us for a drink, please RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org
Collaborating with sound artist, Gawain Hewitt, and musician Michael Tanner (Plinth, United Bible Studies), Easton’s stitch work The Next Verse forms a meter square of interactive embroidery that follows the lifecycle of a fictional family. The major plot lines of The Next Verse are hand stitched by Stewart using conductive thread and a soundtrack composed by Michael Tanner is triggered by touch, each person creating their unique soundscape.
His Piety knows no bounds (again another collaboration with Tanner and Hewitt) is a 2.5 meter interactive quilt depicting the life of St Nicholas bringing together illustration, traditional quilting, sonic art and sound.
