Valerie Huggins - JC 2011 Graduate

Here are post card images of Valerie Huggins graduating exhibition work, 'The Poisoned Heart' series.

She used a variety of  stitching techniques including broidrie perse - the cutting out of motif from a textile and stitching it onto another ground.

Valerie says in her artist statement: 'Myths, legends, superstition, religion. Where does one end and the other begin?

'In the wayside chapels, shrines and home alters of Europe and Mexico, beneath a veneer of propriety and prettiness, is the still-beating heart of ancient archetypes.'
