‘Dark Corners’ by Amanda Woollard

Currently Exhibited  at the Mental Health Museum Wakefield

“I chose to use the medium of textile art to create a body of responses to the subject of mental health, inspired by a former patient of the West Riding pauper and Lunatic Asylum during the mid-nineteenth century. A combination of layered printed and embroidered pieces is designed to visually emulate the fusion of floral remedies within the brain. Embroidered text and florals express the beauty which lies beneath the surface of the dark sinister elements of the narrative. Research into early occupational health treatments and therapies such as embroidery and the embroidered samplers by the former patient have influenced and inspired my work .

The pieces express my interpretation of moments of Mary Francis Heaton’s life and Confinement endured from 1837-1878. Print techniques include relief printing using pigment dye and discharge screen print combined with procion dye monoprints. These processes combined with natural fabrics such as linen and horse hair create a stained ground to which free machine and hand embroidery techniques also add dramatic colour and texture. I approached  this collection with the intention to create a sensitive homage to Mary ‘s life, the experience has been one of sadness and admiration Mary ‘s story has deeply moved me.”
