Yesterday I went to the Boro exhibition at Somerset House and was deeply moved. These cloths made by the poor from scraps of material and then patched and mended now look like works of art, my only criticism was because they had been mounted the back wasn't visible and it was hard to judge the thickness. The effect they had is quite difficult to put into words so I will let the pictures speak for themselves.
This last one made me think of the land from the air.
Oh how I would have loved to touch.
I would like to try to get back for one more visit before it closes on Saturday as opportunities to see such wonderful pieces doesn't come very often.
