Weft and wove

Finished this afternoon, this piece of origami art was folded from a single sheet of giftwrap designed by artist and illustrator Catherine Lindow with whom I was exhibiting at the recent Kinghorn Summer Exhibition.

I have another couple of sheets but as a ‘sketch’ for a more fully-finished piece I rather like the slight imperfections.

In creating this piece, I wanted to pull together ideas about community and people-watching but also, ambitiously perhaps, drag Celtic knotwork into the 21st century because nothing in art better symbolises the unseen links between us and the ties that bind us together.
