JULIA ZAGAR

WEST CORK TEXTILE ARTIST

Based in West Cork I am so stimulated by my surroundings; the intimate and immediate landscapes at my feet, the hedgerows, the empty hillsides and endless rocky shorelines that I explore.  I have recently discovered the joys of working with textiles: the combination of colours, pattern, texture, the history and story behind each scrap is meaningful and exciting. Gathering fabric from different sources, I ‘mix’ them together, much like a painter would use paint; layering and stitching, providing depth, tone and shading. I feel I am 'painting' with textiles. The vast versatility of textiles excites me and I revel in the endless possibilities and potential of this great medium.  Despite the tactile nature of my medium it is the visual impact of my pieces that stimulates and thrills me.
