Joanna Kinnersly-Taylor at The Edinburgh Knitting & Stitching Show


There are themes of memory and of the home running through much of Joanna Kinnersly-Taylor’s work and the everyday or commonplace is often a starting point. Images have their context altered through being magnified, manipulated or abstracted, and are translated onto linen and wool through screen-printing in a series of layers to create new intimate 'landscapes'. She experiments with scale and repetition, creating visual rhythms that evoke a sense of recognition and seek to capture a particular moment, atmosphere or environment. Joanna Kinnersly-Taylor_Resonance_detail_2 Joanna’s printed textile practice includes often large-scale, site-specific commissions for both public and private interiors, one-off works for galleries, and functional domestic linens. Her series Perpetual Mapping is a continuation of an ongoing series that explore the theme of ‘plotted routes’ that link place and time. Examining ideas of boundaries, junctions and intersections, where one thing may start, end, or overlap another, the pieces symbolize the internal mapping of thoughts, as well as external paths taken. Alphabet-tea-towels-1 This transience and progression interacts with areas of repeating pattern, reflecting an interest in capturing the essence of the household setting. These orderly motifs may suggest a wallpaper or textile fragment and come from everyday items. Although their origin is not necessarily overtly apparent, the abstraction process aims to imbue the work with a quiet familiarity. Visit Joanna and the Selvedge stand The Knitting and Stitching Show in Edinburgh over the bank holiday weekend. Joanna will be showing a selection of her one-off pieces including some new works and her latest tea towel range Alphabet, which will also be available.
