LYNNE CHAPMAN

CONTEMPORARY ARTIST, BASED IN THE UK, CREATING HANDSTITCHED FINE ART TEXTILES IN BOTH TWO AND THREE DIMENSIONS.

It is the process of harnessing creativity which interests me, the balance between conscious decision-making and instinct which drives work forwards. I do not plan and rarely use visual reference, but allow pieces to evolve, exploring different ways of combining colour, mark-making and the sensation of contained space. I enjoy keeping my work in a state of flux and employ tricks to free myself from the pitfalls of routine, enforcing randomness, or unfamiliar materials, as soon as I become too comfortable or controlled.
