Natalie Sirrett: Kevin, Wishes and Charms

April 17 - May 15 — Dallas, TX

Ro2 Art is proud to present Kevin, Wishes & Charms a solo exhibition featuring new works by artist Natalie Sirett. The show will run from April 1 through May 15, 2021. The exhibition will open with an artist reception at Ro2 Art the Cedars located at 1501 S Ervay St, Dallas, TX and will take place from 12-5 PM.

Natalie Sirett is a British artist trained in academic painting and printmaking. Her newest body of work is informed by the survival of her own body, now in remission after undergoing ten months of treatment for cancer. Sirett hand embroidered over fifty antique handkerchiefs as she processed coming to terms with her own mortality.

The intimacy of these textiles; square patches of fabric that hold joy, uncertainty, sadness, loss, happiness and hope, are a compelling choice of substrate for the artist’s words to exist on. The images take shape on a background of memory, pierced, looped, and needle-worked into Sirett’s compositions. These fiber art pieces, as well as several assemblage sculptures have never before been exhibited.
