On Display Now
Voyage into the deepest, darkest blue is currently on display in Dovecot’s North Gallery until 2 November 2019.

Contrasting the machine-woven tapestries created by Grayson Perry in our exhibition Julie Cope’s Grand Tour: The Story of a Life by Grayson Perry, we invite visitors to explore this extraordinary tapestry created by Dovecot weavers in collaboration with Garry Fabian Miller.

About the Tapestry
Dovecot Tapestry Studio have worked with Garry Fabian Miller to create a tapestry that draws upon the weavers’ great skill in the carefully considered blending of colour to capture the colour purity in Fabian Miller’s photographic work.

Samples created as part of the development process, explored this consideration and derived that the design for the final tapestry would translate a new image based on an amalgamation of two photographic prints by Fabian Miller. The sampling stage is fundamental in evolving the discussion between artist and weaver to inform the collaboration. As the weaver worked on the samples for the Voyage... tapestry, a sense of rhythm and pace developed in the colour blending; with the rate of change in the wool colours increasing towards the horizon line.

This approach and associated processes adopted in the making of this colour rich tapestry, was highlighted in the exhibition Voyage marking its completion, in early 2018.
