Artist talk and presentation by textile artist Lorraine Roy
Lorraine Roy has been working with textiles in non-traditional ways. Originally devoted to hand-embroidery, she later developed a unique form of machine collage that permits her to ‘paint’ with fabric. By using a unique mixture of techniques like sewing, collage, embroidery and quilting, she integrates thousands of bits of fabric and threads with fine transparent tulle and machine stitching. The sumptuous results combine her passion for science and spirituality while exploring the earthy origins and surprising versatility of fabrics and threads.

Hamilton Guest Artist – Nancy Benoy
Nancy is fascinated with colour, texture and mark making. Combining those elements to create a moment in time, to pause, soak it in and drift away. The intuitive process takes over and stops, then the painting feels just right: the thought, feeling and emotion and now is still.
“For many adults there is an internal dialogue telling you art isn’t for you and you don’t know where to even begin — I love watching people throw that away. We are able to cultivate the freedom we had as children and make beautiful pieces to hang at home or to gift to family or friends.” Nancy Benoy
