About

"We Should All Be Feminists" (inspired by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie) is an original Retex (recycled textile) sculpture by British textile artist Jess de Wahls. This piece ships in the simple, white frame and measures 31”h x 25”w x 2.75”d. ABOUT Originally from Berlin, De Wahls, known as the ‘Enfant Terrible of British textile arts’ tackles subjects as wide ranging as Misogyny, Objectification and Fetishism in her prolific output. Jess creates incredibly intricate Embroideries as well as hand-sewn relief portraits from up cycled clothing, a technique for which she has coined the term ‘Retex-Sculpture’. Encouraging social change and gender equality, exploring Feminism and embracing recycling and reuse are paramount to her practice. Her extensive body of work has been exhibited internationally, featured online as well as in print and is rapidly gaining appreciation within and outside the Textile Art scene. In addition to her own practice, Jess also acts as mentor to the finalists of the prestigious Hand & Lock London embroidery price. She also frequently teaches embroidery workshops at the Soho Theatre as well as at Laura Lea Design. She regularly participates in national and international group exhibitions to introduce her work to new audiences and promote Textile Art as part of the contemporary art scene, swiftly moving away from the ‘craft-label’ often attached to works made of thread.
