Sian Highwood – Textiles
Sian Highwood is creating textile art to explore the relationship between the garment, the body and the environment. Her work involves using cloth and form to communicate and prompt responses and recollections. The current work has involved examining past familial relationships beginning at 114 Harrington Road, and how their influence is still being felt. Working with a range of methods she uses the familiar garment, stitching, layering of cloth and found materials (such as petals and leaves) to connect to the viewer.
