INTRODUCING – IMOGEN MORRIS
Artist Imogen says –
I am influenced by the traditional craft of hand-embroidery, but my style puts a contemporary spin on thread as an art material. My practice challenges the boundaries between craft and fine art.
I see thread as my pencil or paintbrush; exploring the versatility of thread, in ways that means it intrudes into other mediums. I push, pull, and stretch the line of thread to draw. I build up layers in colour to create form, light, and shadow. I morph thread into tangible, 3D forms to push the work into the sculptural realm.
We first came across Imogen Morris’s work at Ikon Gallery Birmingham at the ‘Ikon for Artists’ exhibition in 2021. At that time Seventh Circle Gallery was but a dream but since then Imogen has been someone that we wanted to keep our eyes on.
Imogen has had an amazing year, returning to Brum this Autumn after having completed a residency in London over the Summer following on from a solo show at Digbeth Art Space, Birmingham. We feel very privileged to be working with her and are excited for the next chapter.
The gallery has a collection of three stunning originals that are on display now as well as being available to view and buy online.
