The Embroidered Thread: Interpretations from Australia and America, presents Meredith Woolnough and Jennifer Cranshaw's work together for the first time. While each artist approaches the medium in different ways, there is a comfortable familiarity in the works.
Celebrated local artist Meredith Woolnough has exhibited work at Timeless Textiles several times over the last five years. Her elegant embroidered traceries capture the beauty and fragility of nature in knotted embroidery threads. Through a delicate system of tiny stitches she creates intricate and complex openwork compositions. They are pinned like preserved specimens in shadow boxes. American artist, Jennifer Crenshaw, says her work with free motion embroidery began with the desire to create multiple motifs and shapes using metallic threads. She wanted to create free forms that are not attached to a substrate.

Embroidery Magazine, September/October 2016
From the Embroiderers Guild UK.
Janet de Boer continues her excellent series on Australian artists with a look at the practice of embroiderer Meredith Woolnough (page 24) whom we are delighted to feature on our cover.
On the Cover - Turning Over a New Leaf: Australian artists Meredith Woolnough has long been inspired by nature which she captures in her beautiful embroidery. Mesmerised by the shapes and forms she observes on land and in the sea, Meredith's delicate embroideries capture the wonder of nature without harming the environment. "I hope that people will see my work as the piece of coral that you can feel good about putting in your home". Finely honed craftsmanship enhances the artistic impact of her work. The outcome of this is a series of sculpted embroideries with a clear modern aesthetic, both compelling and memorable.
