This piece was created for the 2014 'Taste of Textiles' exhibition at Timeless Textiles Gallery. For this unique exhibitions 20 textile artists from around the world were each asked to create an artwork that was inspired by a fresh produce food (fruit, vegetable, spice etc.) Each chosen produce would then be used as the hero ingredient in a recipe that was developed by a local cook. From this collection of food inspired art and art inspired recipes a lovely exhibition was developed.
For my contribution to the exhibition I chose red cabbage because I have always loved the fractal like patterns that are revealed when the cabbage is cut in half.
