PREVIEW: Queen of Embroidery ‘Mother Eagle’ Solo Show at BRUSH Gallery

Besi Besemar July 13, 2018

Brush Gallery presents a summer solo show with the hugely talented embroiderer ‘Mother Eagle’.

‘NATURAL FIBRES’ launches on Thursday August 9 with a Private View and continues until the beginning of September.

The exhibition will feature some brand new pieces never exhibited before from her current series Hallowed Ground as well as pieces from the hugely popular Extinct Icons and Ritual Burials series. There will be some exclusive hand-embellished limited edition prints, produced just for the exhibition, as well as a collection of her intricate originals on show and for sale.

Mother Eagle/ Kate Tume, an embroidery artist from Brighton, was born in 1980 and is a fifth-generation needleworker who first learned her craft at her mother’s knee. She attended the Surrey Institute of Art and Design as a Fashion and Illustration student, but is largely self-taught in hand embroidery techniques.

Her work is influenced by folklore, mythology, burial customs and the old Gods. She is currently working on projects around our disappearing natural world, and lost species.
