Jane Suffield: 

My art explores the traditions of Japanese shibori which involves the manipulation of fabric by binding, stitching and folding. By creating a resist, when dyed with indigo patterns emerge which always contain elements of chance.

As much as I think it is important to maintain a connection to the ancient traditions of my art, I also feel a responsibility to evolve my sense of symbolic form within the medium. I like the process of shaping patterns that express a personal and progressive aesthetic.
