A Small Conversation with Myself About Carpet

Glen Armstrong takes a piece of Axminster Summer Bouquet carpet with its distinctive symmetrical floral patterning as a reference point for this body of work.

Armstrong sees the carpet as a metaphor for the prominence of pattern and repetition in the things and actions that make up our daily lives.

During Covid-19 lockdown August 2021 in Auckland the daily patterns and his movement around the house inspired an intense and ongoing period of introspective mark making, embroidery and exploration. The exhibition reveals some of this conversation.
