NICOLA HENLEY'S textile pieces are made by a combination of dying, painting, and screen-printing cotton calico and texturing the surface with various materials stitched into the cloth. The change of scale from bold printing and painting to the intimacy of close stitching helps to convey the concept of near detail with open space of a landscape or seascape.

in-situ

Nicola's work is composed by studying birds and their flight in relation to the natural environment. By watching and drawing their motion she aims to capture a sense of scale and movement within space.

Each piece of work also examines our inner state, using birds to express those emotions and concepts of life both on a personal and a universal level. The work links the abstract sensations of what she feels with hints of the figurative reality in a particular place.
