Tomorrow (31 July) is the final day to enter the Embroidery Raffle as organised by 32 artists in memory of Chris, Stacey Jones’ husband who died earlier this month.
There are some beautiful pieces of embroidery as well as prints and custom pieces being offered and we’d like to thank all of the artists and their supporters who have been so generous. Visit Stacey’s Instagram for a sample of some of the work on offer.
What better reason to feature a couple more artists whose beautiful art also supports our work?
Mask by Richard Wood
Richard Wood is an artist based in East Dulwich, South London. As an artist, Richard is inspired by living in London but growing up in the suburbs. ‘I’m drawn to the edges of places, edgelands and outskirts, places between ‘actual’ places’
Richard’s latest work, Mask, is certainly something we’ve become familiar with in the places we inhabit. ‘’The mask is now firmly part of all of our collective visual landscape’
In 2009, Richard’s wife, Morag Nightingale died from myeloma sarcoma. He has decided to make a limited edition of Mask in support of Sarcoma UK. ’They have really taken off!’
See more of Richard’s work and get in touch with him on his Instagram feed @richardwoodartist.
