Lesley Millar - Curator
A weaver and dyer using the slow process of weaving as a material representation of time: with each pick of yarn the cloth grows and time passes. She uses a subdued palette of natural yarns, natural indigo, rust or tea staining, to enhance the calm, contemplative effect of the work. Catch Louise’s work in the exhibition 'Blue' at Flow Gallery, London in Spring 2011. For details: www.flowgallery.co.uk
