Local Stories Illustrated
May 25 @ 12:30 pm - June 19 @ 4:30 pm
Briefed with the task of creating a textile design for the museum, I delved into researching Amersham’s history through museum visits and the fantastic website. I was especially interested in the local stories online archive, getting to know people from Amershams past. Illustration can be a powerful tool in illuminating what is often overlooked, and I wanted to use drawing to bring to light these stories that you couldnt see in the museum.
My textile design is a collection of these characters from Amershams past. Some are imagined from stories in the archives, some from the wonderful collection of photographs by George Ward.
This exhibition is a body of work inspired by my research at the Amersham Museum. Using drawing, printmaking and painting, I’ve explored Amersham’s history through my personal lens, and sharing with you my findings and interpretations.
