About

Anita Carnell presents in contemporary form traditional embroidery techniques such as back stitching and couching to explore the concept of ‘Ma’ (a Japanese word, meaning negative space) through leather panels hand-stitched in gold.

Carnell’s use of leather is inspired by ninth century Cordovan and Spanish moulded and decorated leather wall hangings which were used to adorn the palaces of Europe. She works with the natural shape of the hide, and threads her inspiration with her expertise, hand-stitching forms in gold thread, exploring the visible and invisible, and the passing of time.

Time is Carnell’s underlying theme. In ‘Revealing Something New’ she explores the idea of being connected and disconnected. As individuals we create beautiful shadows, we come together then disperse, we live in moments that pass and clear, and then things begin again or carry with them echoes and pieces from the past. As such Carnell's work has a quality of calm renewal, enabling the viewer to pause for thought.

The very process of hand-stitching is itself meditative and records the passing of time, things that we cannot necessarily see in the moment but which are revealed over time, all of which are part of the human experience. This is reflected in the natural patina of the gold and leather which as it matures will acquire an even greater beauty as the years pass.

The artist welcomes collaborative commissions for bespoke framed panel works. Requests for different scale and leather colour can be accommodated.
