Traces Revealed

Traces Revealed

Exhibition by Kate Rattray, Alicia Merrett and Hiro Takahashi
Artwork in cloth, tile and clay inspired by the Abbey – Alicia Merrett, Kate Rattray, and Hiro Takahashi.
Alicia has used the abbey’s maps, archaeological plans and decorative details on artefacts to inspire her vibrant and dramatic quilts.
Hiro’s love of the abbey ruins and their natural surroundings is evident in the intricate patterns and textures of her ceramics.
Kate’s work is inspired by Glastonbury Abbey’s legends and historical past. The relics of King Arthur, Queen Guinevere, three saints and a rock star! (Robert Plant)
‘I have made 6 double headed eagles to guard the relics.
My work is a mix of truth and fantasy, old and new.
The relics are mostly playful analogies, comparing the Catholic tradition of the veneration of relics with modern day trends and culture and the souvenir gift shop in general’.
