Saturday 27 April  

Gallery Exhibition Opening

Dorothy Russell

Textiles in Transition

The art Dorothy exhibits is usually produced by painting, printing, piecing, quilting and embellishing textiles. Her work as a textile artist has gained her recognition and awards. Some of this work can be seen on the Portfolio pages of her website. As a Quilt artist, she takes inspiration from many sources, including the natural world, politics, news and history.

Her work includes traditional and contemporary approaches, but always at its heart is a fascination with the materials themselves. Silk particularly attracts her with its lustrous quality and glowing acceptance of paints and dyes. She cannot imagine working in any other medium – there is so much yet to discover. for more information please click here.

Fel arfer, wrth gynhyrchu gwaith i’w arddangos, bydd Dorothy yn peintio, printio, cwiltio ac addurno tecstiliau. Mae wedi ennill cydnabyddiaeth a gwobrau am ei gwaith fel artist tecstiliau. Gellir gweld rhai darnau o’i gwaith ar y tudalennau ‘Portffolio’ ar ei gwefan. Fel artist cwiltiau, caiff ei hysbrydoli gan nifer o ffynonellau, gan gynnwys y byd naturiol, gwleidyddiaeth, y newyddion a hanes.

Mae’n defnyddio dulliau traddodiadol a chyfoes, ond ei diddordeb ysol yn y deunyddiau eu hunain sy’n ganolog i’w gwaith. Mae sidan, yn arbennig, yn ei denu oherwydd ei ansawdd moethus a’r modd y mae’n ymateb i baent a llifynnau. Ni all ddychmygu gweithio mewn unrhyw gyfrwng arall – mae cymaint i’w ddarganfod eto.
