Video chats with Deborah Andrews
In a series of video interviews, artist Deborah Andrews talks about her Gallery@ Half Moon exhibition A Stitch in Time – Reflections from Childhood, a delightful collection of intricate machine embroidered works, etchings and digital prints made from observational drawings.
In the first video Deborah explains more about the exhibition, discusses the meaning of ‘observational art’ and talks about why she uses different artistic mediums – for example print, drawing, digital art and embroidery – in her art.
In the second interview, Deborah describes the difference between the print and embroidery versions of her art, talking specifically about her two works ‘Welsh Cakes (print)’ and ‘Welsh (embroidery)’, and discusses why there is a need for two versions of the same work.
