Colour me Happy
Textile artist Eta Ingham Lawrie’s work takes in all manner of variations, juxtapositions, harmonies. In short: she knows how to make colour really sing. She attended the Royal College of Art in London in the 1960s and over the years has taken part in many group exhibitions both in the UK and overseas, and has had in excess of forty solo shows. Bold, yet subtle, the inspiration for her woven wall-hangings comes from the ever-changing light over land and sea. She uses hand dyed fleece and wool, and many other natural materials – such as stone, shell and wood – to create these extraordinary works. For more than six decades she has brought light, warmth and, yes, colour into people lives and this latest show is pure balm for your soul. Let these works fill you to the brim.
