Quiltscapes & Quiltline.
Spirit of Place is the essence of Pauline Burbidge’s work. Being ‘as still as a needle’ and absorbing the natural environment has been a constant preoccupation. Since moving her home and studio to rural Scotland in 1993, the engagement with the land that surrounds her has increasingly become the leitmotif for most of her practice.
As Pauline says inspiration is ‘peaceful places in the landscape and just absorbing them… the same feeling of calm I have when I’m stitching… being absorbed in the work… stitching is a bit like meditation… the simplicity of it centres me.’
Quiltscapes & Quiltline, celebrates the new work of Pauline Burbidge, shown first at The Bowes Museum and now at Ruthin Craft Centre.
This is a touring exhibition in collaboration with The Bowes Museum.
