Gill Hewitt

Gill Hewitt creates unique textural wall panels and screens. Artwork is developed in layers of fabrics that are usually hand dyed or digitally printed. Each piece is assembled in a painterly manner before being blended together using the needle-punch. Artwork is passed through the needle-punch several times at different stages of the build-up. Layers are often part removed before starting another layer. The finishing stage can involve more cutting back and hand stitching. The effect embodies a sense of spontaneity in which colour, contrast and richness of texture evoke depth and perspective in the artwork.
