Fabrication: Exhibited Collection

Browse and shop a new collection of works from acclaimed artist, Joanne Thompson. ‘Fabrication’ showcases a series of contemporary work inspired by iconic patterns from the textile mills of the North-West.

The 53-year-old mother-of-two, from Ruabon, near Wrexham, who has created in mostly mixed media since she graduated in 2007, has used the fabric designs from textile mills as inspiration for her contemporary creations.

She has worked from her studio near Wrexham for over a decade and has had previous exhibitions with different themes in Cardiff, Aberystwyth and in several northern English towns. Her work is currently displayed in both private collections and corporate premises.

She says: “I have always tried to create at the point where my own inner reality meets the outside world in a naturally artistic and intuitive way. ‘Fabrication’ is my response to the invention, enlargement, manufacture and construction of textiles and I have used this concept as a catalyst for these compositions. Using old fabric designs from the textile mills of the North West I intend to convey their design elements in an enlarged and contemporary manner.”

Each original piece is hand painted with acrylic paint on Fabriano paper, mounted and finished to a high standard in a simple, elegant white frame. All sizes are of artwork only, for sizes including frame, please contact dot-art: enquiries@dot-art.com
