until July 2, 2017

Outside In are presenting an exhibition of textile works by artist James Gladwell. Showing at Pallant House Gallery until July 2, Gladwell's solo show James Gladwell: The Dreams is the artist's prize for winning the Outside In Award in 2016.

Gladwell draws directly onto found pieces of fabric, before stitching over the intricate designs with colourful cotton threads. His latest works feature birds, mermaids and other imagery drawn from his dreams.

James’ delicately stitched artwork Foreign Birds features in Outside In’s exhibition Radical Craft: Alternative Ways of Making, which continues its national tour until November 2017. At the preview of Radical Craft, renowned Outsider Artist Marie-Rose Lortet selected James to be the Outside In Award Winner for 2016. Lortet said of her selection:

"I chose James Gladwell because of my sensitivity to, and my knowledge of threads. In Foreign Birds I see the air [space] in between, and it feels as if you are gliding over the world. I believe the artist searches for serenity and calm through his work."
