Cotton thread over cyanotype print on cotton fabric
Dimensions: 37 x 76 cm
Rhiannon Robinson’s work explores the fusion of typography and textiles. Inspired by the written word, she uses both machine and hand embroidery with print techniques such as cyanotype and rust dyeing, to explore how type and lettering can be translated into textile media. The subjects of landscape, geology, science and nature are often sources of inspiration. ‘Fossils’ uses text taken from A Land by Jacquetta Hawkes, first published in 1951. A very personal and elegiac piece of writing, the book charted 4 billion years of Earth history, through geology, archaeology and cosmology, becoming one of the defining British non-fiction books of the post war decade and a classic in the literature of nature and landscape.
