Jacky Puzey’s artworks reflect on shifting cultural allegiances and shared patterns. Conceptually her embroidery designs explore visual collaborations across cultures, from multicultural graffiti’d cityscapes to historical textile motifs and traditional cloth. Her embroidery creates a beautiful meditation on urban migration and landscape, where lime-green Parakeets hurtle across London gardens and hares move into urban parks. Cultural exchange is an important theme as her textile patterns reflect contested histories and shared fashions.
“The Parakeet Cocktail Chair is my luxurious embroidered response to the sight of wild exotic birds flying across grey London skies.”
