Interweave : Joint Exhibition of Gail Kenning and Sue Pedley

Gail Kenning's digital animation
Gail Kenning and Sue Pedley share an interest in pattern and processes. Kenning works with form, structure, code and data to create patterns that seemingly dissolve into random or develop into chaos.  

Sue Pedley's fabric collage

These emerging patterns are exhibited in the form of programmed animations and physical lace, woven or knitted artefacts. Pedley draws out patterns of cross-cultural connections between people, places and objects. These patterns are exhibited as animations and collages. The recent body of work involves interweaving paper and textiles found in an abandoned house while developing an installation for the Setouchi International Art Festival (2010) in Japan.
