Jeni_Ross: "Earth and Air"
1400 x 2000 mm
Woven Tapestry

1 of 2 TAPESTRIES FOR STRODE THEATRE, STREET, SOMERSET. Each tapestry 1400 x 2000mm. Commissioned through the National Lottery as part of a major extension to the theatre. Interior design by John Bury, former Head of Design at  the RSC and the Royal National Theatre.

The tapestries are hung in the theatre at ground and 1st floor level and can be seen together from outside the building. This was my starting point and I developed designs that would work well as a pair, reflect the use of the building and would be especially seen at night when the theatre is lit. In each piece the 2 figures animate the foreground over a stylised stage set. Each tapestry explores the Shakespearean theme of Art and Nature, Earth and Air.
