A Chaos of Threads and Nothing that Matches

Emily Thomas explores curiosities of everyday life. Intrigued
by the processes we have each day to get ready. Gathering
narratives and routines have inspired drawing and mark making.
From spontaneously flicking paint with hair bobbles, to painting
with an electric toothbrush; every intricate texture and line is
examined. Translating this into embroidery it is created by hand
with rigour and a strong sense of craftsmanship. This collection
focuses on her own personal, unorganised and sometimes
chaotic routine. This has been captured through the threads that
appear to be tangled together in a disorderly manner and vibrant
colours that paint the pictures in her daydreams. Capturing
this wit and humour within her work gives Thomas’s craft
driven approach to embroidery a fresh and intriguing aesthetic.
