#LoveArt – Valériane Leblond

This month, artist Valériane Leblond takes part in our #LoveArt campaign.

She has chosen View from Hen Gaer Castellan by Edrica Huws (1907-1999) as her final choice.

I love how the artist uses the different fabrics in a way a painter would use the colours on a palette. The tones are subtle, and the subject itself is not obvious at first sight. I find it interesting that Edrica Huws uses patchwork, a craft that is not very present in the art world, but which has been a mean for women to express themselves for several centuries, especially in Wales. Her style is unique and the patterns on the fabrics give it an extra dimension.
