Though she works predominantly in textiles and embroidery, there is nothing soft about the work of Rozanne Hawksley. Her extraordinary art covers the great themes of life; love and loss, war and suffering, isolation and the abuse of power, by focusing in on intimate details of what they mean to a specific individual.
This installation takes the viewer back to previously unseen, early work from renowned artist Rozanne Hawksley, some of it never completed. Including insightful sketches of herself and others, the artist has revisited these pieces to create a new work that is a commentary on modern life, its stresses and joys.
Filmed November 2009 at the Harrogate Knitting & Stitching Show and Edited by Andrew Galli • 'Polka' composed by Dmitri Shostakovich • Courtesy Creative Exhibitions, Ltd., London, England.
