Event description

Description

Decorated is an ongoing research project that explores the
relationships between commemoration and memory through
textiles. This new body of work is inspired by Cheney’s family
origin at Naesby, Northamptonshire and their connection
with the war memorial in the village.


Naesby’s copy of the Menin Gate Lion bears the name of 11
servicemen who didn’t survive the war and one of Cheney’s
uncles devoted many years of his life to researching them.
Decorated tells the story of these men and brings them to
life in the gallery.


Cheney exploits both hand craft, hand operated and computer
aided manufacture in textiles; complex grounds are built from
layers of scans of hand drawn images, photography, digital
manipulations, pattern and the contrasts of stitch qualities.
