Following the huge success of her show at The Arts Centre in Washington, local artist Jane Sanders will be exhibiting many of her new pictures alongside some old favourites at The Foyer Gallery at People’s Theatre in Newcastle this month with her exhibition entitled ‘Stitchin’ in the Kitchen’.
The show, which is two years in the making, consists of a series of portraits of iconic music stars created out of fabric on an old singer sewing machine and the result is a collection of colourful, highly-skilled and unusual pictures.
Sanders’ work is truly unique and shows real character, with her pictures of Amy Winehouse and Jack White among the favourites of this writer.
If you’ve seen her work online I have to say, looking at examples on the small screen in front of you is nothing compared to the untethered joy of standing in front of a piece of art so stunning as this. And to consider the fact that these pieces were made on an old singer typewriter only beckons you even more.
As a great deal of her work portrays famous musicians and pop culture icons, Sander’s has a universal appeal that will give older viewers a taste of yesteryear and young viewers a different perspective on a world of celebrity that may have passed them by.
If you’d like to view the exhibition then this stunning artwork will be on display at The Foyer Gallery at People’s Theatre, Newcastle between 17th-21st of April and the 1st-5th May. If you like, you can arrange group viewings outside of these times by simply contacting the gallery at [email protected]
