Mini-Worlds

Maxine Greer's worlds have evolved out of research gathered through drawing field margins, hedgerows and following the seasons on tour.  A particular fascination is the  role of field margins and waste lands, studying the flora within and around these ruderal spaces.

Taking a closer look at the micro and the macro within nature; they hint at museum collections, pinning down the subject matter ready for study. Greer uses stitch to build these small landscapes, layering and twisting threads to create a moment experienced through drawing nature.  

Her large scale photographs allow for a new enquiry - the tiny worlds blown up create an abstract landscape with alternative flora reminiscent of our natural world.  

For a closer look at these embroidered worlds  pop along to DRAW at the Yarrow Gallery, Oundle.  Show closes 24th March!
