Priscilla Jones

Priscilla’s work explore the possibilities of creating  textiles that are reflective and personal using processes and techniques that she has developed through her own experimentation using hand and machine stitch on painted fabrics and wire structures, these also incorporate found materials and haberdashery.  The work explores the ideas of memory and nostalgia and how one can recapture intimate moments and reclaim them through the process of making.

“My current practice explores the concept of identity, memory and the translucency of time. Each piece is an example that has been manipulated and reworked through processes of embellishment that include paint, collage, and stitch.  Assembled together, often familiar materials and objects produce the field on which I develop a visual narrative that provokes the viewer to their own semantic exploration. The work also resonates with us as emotionally; we recognize and react to the familiar, remembered, and implied links to things past. Haunting, evocative, disturbing, nostalgic or distorted, memories are created in the subconscious and through the pieces I create I want to awaken the subconscious.”

These themes underpin a range of areas within her work including exhibiting through galleries, freelance designs for greeting cards wallpaper, fashion and interior fabrics exporting to Japan, Europe and the U.S.A. Priscilla also lectures part-time in embroidery and drawing on the BA (Hons) Contemporary Textiles degree at ELIHE. In 2003 Priscilla and her husband opened the Edge Gallery in their home town of Lancaster specializing in contemporary fine and applied art.
