Mick Lindberg: SEW the Seed
15 July - 30 August
A remarkable and original exhibition of textile-based artworks by this Swedish-born artist exploring both female figures and her love of flora through pattern and collage. This latest collection carries Lindberg’s passion for textiles and storytelling, using the themes of flowers and nature entwined with femininity and form.
“The seed of this show was planted a long time ago, and has slowly germinated.
I like to think that I have opened the gate to a garden of endless imagination,
where time & place is of no importance, and flowers grow wild in strange places.
There are no borders to this realm where the very essence of nature lives." ML
Born in Sweden in 1950, Mick Lindberg learned the art of needlework from her mother and grandmother. Throughout her life, her love of textiles and fashion has influenced her career choices, first as a successful model and photographer, now as a textile artist.
She has held numerous solo exhibitions in London, as well as in New Mexico, New York and Bath.
