National Museums Liverpool Blog

National Museums Liverpool Blog
is such an interesting site which everyone interested in art and textiles will love. So put it in your favourites now, you will find something of interest every visit. Here you will get an insight into the work of the various museums.
I went to the Textile Conservation Department years ago when Maggie Grey was the Editor of The World of Embroidery magazine. She arranged an embroidery weekend on the Wirral. We visited so many places of interest and had a wonderful time. Our visit to the textile Conservation department was very interesting.
On this blog you will also find many other interesting things for example this one My favourite colour - the results I think this reflects the colours children and young people like. The Museums do a lot to encourage young people to visit and is such a good thing. I always took my children to Museums and Art Galleries when they were young.

Here is another connection I made through the national museums Blog. 'Slump/Fear (orange/black) 2004', Alexis Harding


Notes on Slump/Fear:
Slump/Fear (orange/black) 2004 is a work made within a set of limits that I can only discover by squeezing and pushing these limits to extremes.
To present prosaic stuff (paint) in a moment of transformation, allowing one cohering structure to vanish while another emerges.
Slump/Fear is an anarchic chemistry of wrinkles, tears, slippages and seepages.
Biography
