Saskia Saunders: Sanctuary
2 July 2021 - 25 July 2021Free
A solo exhibition of woven sculptures by Saskia Saunders. Saskia Saunders uses natural materials and yarns such as linen, hemp, and paper to connect people directly to the positive energy of nature. Meditative processes, such as weaving and warping are methods of construction. Saunders uses them to demonstrate how we can build and grow steadily towards our future vision, whilst being grateful for the moment in hand.
ABOUT THE ARTIST / ORGANISERSaskia Saunders achieved a First Class degree Woven Textiles at the University of Brighton and has worked with woven textile design companies and social enterprises in New York, China and Cambodia. She defined herself as a “sustainable futures artist.”
Saunders exhibited in London, Paris, New York, and Munich. From her travels in Japan, Saunders is also inspired by the Japanese aesthetic values of : Ma – appreciating the space around things, Wabi-sabi – accepting imperfection and Shibui – enjoying subtle beauty. Saunders’ sculptures do not seek to be perfect, because nature and life are both imperfectly beautiful. Her work invites a calm pause, a moment of contemplation for us to reconnect with ourselves, and the natural world around us.
