MA Textile Design work by Felicity Booth

Felicity has a passion for walking and prehistory. Drawing on phenomenological theory used for the analysis of prehistoric sites and ancient landscapes, she has developed strategies for producing work that record her experiences of walking through these richly symbolic places. Research for her MA project was conducted at twelve stone circles in the English Lake District. Her influences include artists Richard Long and Maya Lin, ideas of the sublime as expressed in the poetry of Wordsworth and Coleridge, as well as more rugged verse such as Sylvia Plath’s Wuthering Heights. The result is a series of abstract, imaginary, dyed, printed and cut textiles landscapes. Exploring colour through textile dyes is a strong theme in the project. The colours and textural effects reflect those found on the stones and moors of the Lake District. Developed from a series of ideograms, the laser cut lines and printed patterns are graphic representations of Felicity’s emotional and intellectual experiences.
