“Until lions write their own history the tale of the hunt will always glorify the hunter”

Deanna Tyson exhibits her textile works from 1 July 2013 – 3 January 2014
The exhibition opening will be held on Saturday 6 July 2013 from 2.30 – 4.30pm

For her exhibition at The Alison Richard Building Deanna Tyson has both selected and created works in response to the study Centres housed within; African, Latin American, South Asian, Politics and Development Studies.

Taking the form of kimono, wall hangings, mats, soft sculptures and paintings she tells her political tales and weaves her social comments through stitched and painted textiles.

“Textiles, their application, their colours, their very threads and stitches reveal a great deal about the social history of differing cultures. Exploiting the ubiquitous nature of textiles,       I take contemporary political events and portray them through clothing and soft furnishing.  I regard my works as three-dimensional political cartoons.”
