Textile Art by Maxine Sutton
On a recent hunt for emerging artwork with an eco-friendly edge, I came across the work of London artist Maxine Sutton. Trained as a painter, Maxine's pieces strike just the right balance between texture, color, form, and references to culture and the environment. Gorgeous embroideries, stitched cloth, screenprinted images, and needle-punch felting characterize Maxine Sutton's work. It's almost like a stitched, tactile version of a Rex Ray piece. What is really amazing is that she uses combinations of reclaimed or organic fabric, low impact printing methods, and plant dyed yarns sourced from the Pyrenees - all to keep her art production ethical and sustainable.
