STEWART EASTON: THE NEXT VERSE
A3 Project Space | Unit A3 2 Bowyer Street, Digbeth, Birmingham, B10 0SA
Sat & Sun – Sat 13 June & Sun 14 June, 12pm – 5pm
Breaking the traditional boundaries of craft, Stewart Easton’s latest work, The Next Verse, fuses together hand embroidery, sonic art and music.
Collaborating with sound artist, Gawain Hewitt, and musician Michael Tanner (Plinth, United Bible Studies), Stuart’s stitch work forms a meter square of interactive embroidery that follows the lifecycle of a fictional family. The major plot lines of The Next Verse are hand stitched by Stuart using conductive thread and a soundtrack composed by Michael is triggered by touch, each person creating their unique soundscape. Stuart will also be developing a site specific wall drawing in the gallery during the exhibition.
Stewart Easton is a visual storyteller based in London who works in thread, ink, paint and digital. www.stewarteaston.net
