Stitch: Loani Lee

Her interest in textiles started fairly conventionally with patchwork quilts. However she rapidly discarded the constraints of this traditional approach to textiles, getting rid of colour, structure and utility. Her work now has a zen simplicity. It is mostly white on black, or black on white. Her eye, mind and the needle go on a voyage of discovery over the simple cotton fabric. The result was a contemplative field of marks and lines that seems to allude to both a physical and emotional journey.
