Imogen Mills : Textile Artist : Kidwelly
Imogen is a multi-disciplinary artist and recent textiles graduate from Carmarthen School of Art.
Her work is based around the immersive experience of cold water swimming through the winter. Witnessing the diminishing light, dropping temperatures, the biting cold of viscous mineral rich lakes, frenetic rivers and muddy banks; she translates experiences into hand woven sculptures exploring colour, scale, depth, light, through the surface of woven cloth.
These pieces are from the extensive colour studies that informed her sculptures. Each one is hand painted and therefore totally unique with layers of ink building up a density that communicates the deep void of cold winter lake waters.
