Stewart Francis Easton’s Stories, as Told in Textiles

From small to large-scale pieces, the focus is on collectable designs that uplift the spirit. During August, the focus is on Stewart Francis Easton, a graphic storyteller based in London who works in yarn, ink, dye and digital media. Using folk songs and stories as a starting point, Easton weaves story-based narratives, utilising the space of a single panel to explore time, movement and transition within his tapestry-like works, often on linen. Easton’s creations break the traditional boundary of textiles and handicrafts, through embroidery, sonic art, and design-based illustration. Each piece is usually reworked from drawings done by pen, which ultimately influences the final, illustrative look of a tapestry.
