Stewart Easton
Breaking the traditional boundaries of craft, Stewart Francis Easton’s work fuses together hand embroidery, sonic art and music. Drawing upon and using folk song, story and social history as a starting point Easton works with the space and weight of story to create large scale wall based pieces which emphasise the passage of time within a single panel. These pieces vary in size and medium and can be drawn with hand embroidery, direct wall drawing or paint. Whichever medium is used Easton emphasises the need to create using the hand as it is in this process that a connection is made with the story allowing a slowing down and immersion in the moment. Most recently Easton has been removing the ‘storyline’ of a visual narrative by creating geometric/ graphic forms in stitch. This reassembling of his work ethic in a chance layout enables the viewer to be free of their preconceptions of story. Using a process of abstract minimal stitch he is enabling himself to create a visual reference to an ever changing pathway and reaching for a utopian form. Easton’s stitch work blurs the lines between craft, illustration and fine art making his work dynamic and progressive and a must see. Stewart Francis Easton is a visual storyteller based in London who works in thread, ink, paint and digital media.
