Helen Darlington Textile Artist
After completing a Fine Art Degree, I returned to my first love of textiles with renewed confidence. Recent works are moving towards surreal landscapes, celebrating the unexpected with joyful colour. I regard the discarded and revel in the detail. I use stitch, fabric, paper, threads and found/appropriated items. I collect, I hoard, I Magpie swoop and pick the shiny.
That noise?, last night, in your backyard?, that was me in your bins. Sorry.
