It’s Too Late to Stop Now, 1980
I’d begun a secondary series of mesh works whereby the surface was covered in canvas before I’d stitch into it. That which had previously been semi-opaque suddenly appeared solid. The thread rhythms continued to march across the surface trapping ties of cloth and collage material in an increasingly calligraphic arrangement. It’s Too Late to Stop Now is the largest canvas mesh, 10 panels, each one covered in a hand printed, patched topographical skin clearly influenced by Landsat Satellite photography.
First exhibited Prescote in London, Warwick Arts Trust 1980.
