Recycled & reclaimed materials, Layered denim, Art and Architecture


ATASDA have been sent the latest Newsletter from Sam & Joe, TextileArtist.org.
To read the full newsletter go to:TextileArtist.org

Welcome to this week’s newsletter, we've got a couple of fascinating interviews for you. The first is with Ian Berry, who uses denim to painstakingly create melancholic urban scenes, and in the second we take a look back in the archives at our interview with Kirsty Whitlock, an artist using recycled and reclaimed materials to challenge the preconception of textile art. We also have the latest in our Discover... series, which explores the work of four artists inspired by buildings and physical structures.
Artist Interview

Ian Berry: Behind Closed Doors

Ian Berry creates melancholic urban scenes, often depicting a lonely or less glamorous side of city living. Even at touching distance, many viewers don’t realise that they are looking at many layers, and shades, of denim jeans.

In this interview, Ian talks about his current exhibition Behind Closed Doors. We discover how this body of work came about, the process of putting it together and what drew him to denim in the first place.

Textile artists inspired by architecture

Throughout the year we’ve taken a closer look at the materials and subjects that inspire some of our top artists to make their work extraordinary.

From felt and wool to birds and landscapes, each article revealed what material or subject the artist is drawn to and why it fires their imagination.

In this article, part of our Discover… series, we look at the work of four wonderful textile artists inspired by architecture. Visit: TextileArtist.org
