From a recent trip to the Saatchi gallery, I came across the artist Agathe Snow, part of the American contemporary art exhibition. Part of her work on show (top photograph), the cross series captured my attention. I like her use of textiles to depit human forms in an abstract way. I did not like her religious connotations.
Snow's work reminded me of Annette Messager's work, (bottom photograph) from the Hayward Gallery last May. She also makes use of textiles, including stuffed toys. Both are fine artists that interpret the use of textiles in a different form to craft.
