alison mcintyre

medium - mixed media


alison mcintyre draws, paints and makes images with thread. similar patterns, repetitions and colours often recur in her work. all the images here are hand-sewn with a technique called curve stitching.

alison re-discovered the technique about three years ago whilst teaching an adult education class, though it may be familiar if you had a spirograph set as a child, or you may have wound thread round nails in basic patterns at primary school. she loves the magic of sewing straight lines that result in such beautiful and inexplicable curves and patterns; it's the perfect combination of art and maths.
