I was drawn to Xaviera Black's work (here) due to the bold use of colour, the electric blue background holds in place the abstract shapes which mold together bringing meaning to the title Linked. The layered shapes and variety of tones create depth which have been crafted through an unusual use of tufted wool. The concept of textile craft being purely domesticated and functional is completely contradicted within this piece, Xaviera Black has claimed back craft while playing with the intent which comes across as playful and abstract. The piece subtly highlights the meaning behind it while still being loud in shape and design making it hard to ignore.
