Prinkie Roberts

Prinkie Roberts’s inspiration comes mainly from the interaction of nature, people, and the political and environmental events that confront them. Her work records the feeling and texture of landscapes and events, and her personal reaction to them, using bold and vibrant colour. She feels strongly that art should be accessible, and should be written about in simple terms that are easily understood. She has attempted to explore the themes of displacement, conflict and personal identity – always attempting to convey a sense of dignity and endurance.

TEXTILE PRACTICE
Prinkie Roberts’s method of work mainly involves appliqué and hand-stitching. The materials and techniques used are very varied. She generally starts by using layers of thin silks, cottons and chiffons, often hand-dyed and bonded together. She then hand-stitches, mainly using large straight-stitch, couching and running-stitch. The manipulation of fabric and the building up of a surface of layers continue to fascinate her. She devises techniques to fit the concept – not to dictate it.
