Imogen Morris


Imogen creates portraits using nail and thread. Her practice challenges the boundaries between craft and fine art, by putting a contemporary spin on thread as a material that we can view in both fine art and craft spaces.

Imogen sees thread as her pencil or paintbrush; exploring the versatility of thread, in ways that means it intrudes into other mediums. She draws with the line of thread, builds up layers in colour to create form, light, and shadow, and morphs thread into tangible, 3D forms to push the work into the sculptural realm.
