Alison Bell:
Textile Artist

My textile craft practice revolves round reflection, experimentation and creative play; central to this is the environment where I work on a small Scottish island. Here the weather is elemental in its effects on the shoreline where wind and water constantly alters its appearance.

The methods I use to explore these changes in surface qualities are based on traditional textile techniques such as painting, printing, stitch and collage on fabric. However the combination of these with digital technology is allowing me to develop ideas more quickly and in greater depth than before.

The new work is created by a combination of drawing, painting, digital photography, scanning, image manipulation, wide format digital printing with fibre reactive dyes and more traditional textile techniques such as overprinting with pigments and stitching. The fact that the images may be printed almost any size and onto almost any substrate, is very attractive to an artist.

“My work lies somewhere between textiles and jewellery. Inspiration can come from birds; their elegant shape of the movement of a beak has influenced the way some of my bags open.”
