Textile art

Sally Ruddock Rivière - Textile art

Calendar from 09/01/2023 to 03/03/2023

Sally Ruddock Rivière - soulful expressions

Touched by the textile fragments of another time, the hand-made magic that produced them and the emotional nuance of their details, Sally’s work is unique. She repairs materials that are damaged, abandoned and neglected; revives the treasures she exhumes from the limbo of lost memories and breathes new life into them. Slow, delicate movements, where she who patiently embroiders allows her whole soul to pass through her hands; where she who embroiders ... Read more »

The scenery outside the window passes me by: on the outskirts of Zagreb, well-tended gardens line up; then misty forests of Slovenia with occasional picturesque villages; followed by Austrian backyards with restrained vegetation; which finally merge into rows of Saxon monoculture forests, that at certain angles reveal the horizon under the mild and clear sun.

It is love that unravels the tangle of (in)visible threads that connect us all. To see the bigger picture, we need to look inside ourselves and give love, and then calmly wait for it to be returned. Because love always returns to the thin threads that bind us all together. The more you love, the more you are. We ... Read more »

The further we go, the better we see ourselves, is a thought that occurred to me after a trip to another continent.

New landscapes, smells, people, colours, cities are a challenge for our curiosity, an opportunity to expand our horizons and a good way to enrich our personality.
