Janine Ayres


The curiosity that led me to a life in science dictates my work. I am constantly fascinated by the extraordinary world of quantum mechanics; giving images to things that exist in more than one state at the same time or do not exist at all until observed. The idea of being but not being, led on to the consideration of the mind and what it may mean to “be”. Why do some live in the “real” world but so many live in the world as they want it to be? I choose cloth as my medium to explore texture and layering unobtainable in more solid and conventional media. I dye and print my own cloth. My passion for stitch leads me to surface decoration that can add an extra dimension to the story of the piece.
