On Friday, Pat and I went to a private view at Gateshead Library Gallery. The show was by Maggie Walker, whom I once knew as the owner of a really good little commercial gallery in Newcastle, called the Clayton Gallery. The sort of gallery we could do with more of in this region.
I really liked her paintings which are made by a form of printing. She told me she knits up the fabric herself - quite a feat, it seems to me, given that some of the pictures are pretty large - and then soaks them in acrylic paint. Then, with the help of her partner, she lays them onto the (damp?) canvas. One or two were also run through a press to make the marks more positive.
Interesting idea. And certainly interesting paintings.
