Caesura – A New Exhibition of Fibre Art

October 3, 2011

Patricia  McMillan, Moira West and Linda Westerman…

… present a new collaborative body of work; the exhibition will be of interest to collectors and those who appreciate contemporary art.  The ‘Caesura’ exhibition explores lines, patterns, and pauses – poetry in a visual mode.

Patricia McMillan’s current work is based on seascape – colour, rhythm and fluidity are paramount. Dyeing, painting and printing on cotton, silk and paper results in a refreshing unexpected interplay of colour.

Building on the success of her 2010 solo exhibition Moira West has created 2D and 3D works – the beautiful and not so beautiful, the unusual, playful, and textural, as she continues to challenge and explore the versatility of fibres. Her professional practice is dedicated to the promotion of fibres and development of new techniques.


Linda Westerman’s work is inspired by her love of history and archaeology, particularly mosaics. She uses machine embroidery, hand stitch, paper, paint and emulsion. She is York Minster Broderers’ Director of Embroidery, a freelance tutor and lecturer.

The three artists are members of various groups both nationally and internationally. Their work is regularly exhibited and appears in private collections.
