James Gladwell's imaginative textile work won him the coveted Outside In Award at the Radical Craft exhibition in 2016. His prize is this solo show, which will run at Pallant House Gallery 8 April to 4 June 2017.
James draws directly onto found pieces of fabric, before stitching over the intricate designs with colourful cotton threads. His drawings express whatever is of interest to him at the time; memories, dreams, television shows or the world around him. Stitching is something that is portable, relaxing and satisfies his need to create.
