INSPIRED BY LACE

JACQUELINE LAWRENCE

 

Lady Barber’s personal lace collection is the starting point for mixed-media textile artist Jacqueline Lawrence’s series of sensitively observed works.

For hundreds of years, lace has provided a decorative aspect to things of practical use. This function- as well as lace’s intricate detail and imaginative design- have fascinated Lawrence, who has also sought to imbue her own work with vintage lace’s varied tones by experimenting with natural and artificial processes. A selection of Lady Barber’s lace will be included in the exhibition Portrait of A Lady.
