  • Naomi Robertson: Reflections

In response to the Studio’s call for an original composition to celebrate the move to the new studio in the old Infirmary Baths communal swimming pool, Master weaver Naomi Robertson created an elegant figurative solution.
As a cultivated draughtswoman, Robertson enjoys the projection of a human form in tapestry, but rarely gets the opportunity to do so ! Her virtuoso depiction of tonal shadows in the back of the young woman and in the surface of the water contrasts neatly with the girl looking forward to the bands of colour above the water.

These illustrate the spools of wool in their range across each colour as they await her skills in the new use of this building. Perhaps indeed Naomi herself looking to her future work.
