The embroidered newspaper above is by Kirsty Whilock. Her work mainly focuses on the culture of our society to throw away items of consumption; due to this she regularly uses reclaimed and recycled items within her work. She wants to not only provide a piece of art but also translate a message to the public about these issues of our society in hand. I love how she has used the newspaper as a base for her embroidery as well as the deeper embedded message she is portraying to the wider public.

Kirsty Whitlock’s embroidery

Bags of Aggro - Kirsty Whitlock mixed media fiber. I like this piece because it includes an ordinary item which is transformed into a textile piece.

KIRSTY WHITLOCK  I like kirsty Whitlock's work as she uses free machine embroidery to draw and adorn a surface. She uses recycled materials like in this piece she has used a tesco bag and a newspaper to create a  piece. These slogans are embroidered onto the bag and are comments about society today. I love political art as I feel it has purpose and is another way of people speaking their views. There is also layers thread sewn and left hanging to create more texture and distress the piece.
