RISEgallery is delighted to announce their first show of the year ‘An Unnatural History’. The show is an exhibition of contemporary needle works by South London based artist Tina Crawford.

After an extensive career in free embroidery illustration, designing for high-end clients such as Shakespeare’s Globe, Kew Gardens and the Museum of London, Crawford brings her sewn works to RISEgallery for her debut solo show.

Crawford is a master of her craft, using the sewing machine with such fluidity as if the apparatus is an extension of her own body. Crawford’s works show not only a virtuosity of technique, but a true passion for the anatomical and the mythical.

The exhibition, ‘An Unnatural History’, is a spectacle of skeletal forms, both real and fictitious, exploring myths against real syndromes from the 18thCentury to present day. Crawford’s unique visual translations blur the distinction between reality and imagination, creating a body of work that is as insightful and informed as it is fantastical.

Exhibition Dates 11th February – 10th March 2016
Opening Times Tuesday to Friday 10am-6pm, Saturdays 10am-4pm
Address RISEgallery, 7-9 St Georges walk, Croydon, CR0 1YH
