Description (no more than 300 words)

UK artist Diana Harrison manipulates found items with a variety of techniques that transform them. The fabric, patchwork and quilts in Traces in Cloth retain a visual 'trace' of their original state, but are modified by stitching, dyeing, shrinking, bleaching, and printing. The end result is a new textile, with a tactile appeal heightened by a lack of color and an emphasis on the stitched line. Harrison is a senior lecturer in textiles at the University for the Creative Arts, School of Crafts and Design, Farnham.
