About the Artist

Angela's work uses different types of textiles including linen and lace, many of which are vintage and reclaimed. Some works include both textiles and mixed media. Heavy fabric backgrounds are transformed using an assemblage of cut fabric shapes which are handsewn into place. The subjects are instantly recognisable but it's their size and boldness that makes them striking and unusual.

"The materiality of hand sewing invokes a feeling of nurturing, home making and a sense of retrenchment to what is true, respecting the values of craft and making. "

Angela is a contemporary artist living and working in Dunblane. Her work uses different types of textiles including linen and lace, many of which are vintage and reclaimed. Some works include both textiles and mixed media. Heavy fabric backgrounds are transformed using an assemblage of cut fabric shapes which are handsewn into place.

The subjects are instantly recognisable but it's their size and boldness that makes these statement works, eye catching and a definite talking point. Her current works follow classic design icons such as the classic 3 stripe Penguin paperback book, vintage and modern postage stamps, old coins and the London Underground tube station signs.

There will be a display of both framed and unframed works of varying sizes. Some pieces are large. You can see works which are available and works in progress at www.angelaedgar.blogspot.com including the size, price and whether framed or unframed.
