Cornelius Vermuyden's Art Project

Textile artist Vanessa Rolf will be artist in residence at Cornelius Vermuyden School until the middle of May. The main focus for Vanessa's work is the journeys, maps and the physical exploration of a landscape. Her textiles relate stitch, texture and composition to maps and documentary photographs but also aim to capture the essence of a place. She looks to the relationship between the geography, mapping of movement and the recorded experience of a place. Vanessa's work uses hand embroidery, machine and digital stitch, appliqué and screen print.
