Spike Island

Co-curated by Robert Leckie and artist Pio Abad, this is Pacita Abad's first solo exhibition in the United Kingdom. The exhibition includes over 20 large- scale ‘trapunto’ paintings and other works on fabric made between 1983 and 2002. Characterised by their vibrant colour and intricate construction, these works combine a broad range of styles, subjects and techniques, from social realist tableaus incorporating indigenous textiles to richly detailed abstractions inspired by Korean ink brush painting, Indonesian batik and Papua New Guinean shells.
