'The Sun and Her Flowers'

Enriching fine art textiles by artist Christine Robson.

"I am a textile artist, mother and wife where I reside in Piha, my happy place of childhood memories. I began to explore my passion for textile art by mastering the craft of making wool felt, human kinds earliest textile achieved by using water. My compositions start with a sketch and a considered plan that evolves organically and slowly over time through a process of looking rearranging and looking again until the excited feeling of completion. My work is constructed using raw Merino wool form the South Island of New Zealand combined with mediums such as cashmere, silk, cotton and linen threads from NZ, Portugal and Italy. It’s extremely important to me to use as many natural, organic and ethically sourced fibres as part of my work without depleting or damaging the environment. I see my art as a ‘celebration of craft’. I aim to visually captivate the viewer to feel deeply and emotionally uplifted.

This exhibition is a dedication to my lovely mum Jean who passed away in March this year. She bought a ray of sunshine with her when she entered a room and it feels like she took a little bit with her when she left. Mum had a love and an incredible knowledge of flowers, her favourite, the Sunflower.

Thank you for all the love Mum, for you were truly loved."
