Congratulations Debra Giles!

Our very own Debra Giles, has won 1st prize in the 2020: Future in Focus Competition. Here's the bio on this amazing piece of art!

Eternal Recurrence  by  Deborah Giles

Paul Simon said “…the course of a lifetime runs, over and over again.” We can’t see the future clearly, but the concept of eternal recurrence, symbolized by circle motifs and shared by major philosophies and religions, ancient and modern, expresses that over an infinite period, everything recurs infinitely: microscopic, personal, historical, universal. Shared experiences of life that define the heart of the human condition have happened before and will happen again in the future. My multicolour, multi-scale, overlapping circles sitting isolated or spiralling around one another express the multilayered complexity of all that we have experienced and will experience again.

  • Techniques: multi-layer raw edge reverse applique, bobbin work

  • Materials: hand-dyed and commercial cotton and silk
