Jeryl Church

A passion for language and books underpins Jeryl’s work. Its departure work is often paper: a container of ideas and holder of memory. That messages are dependent on the way they are encoded, received and their context is central to the making of her work. Personal connection with the ideas being explored plays an integral part of the process. Increasingly her work is being driven by the political climate and her need to investigate and comment on current issues.


TEXTILE PRACTICE
Jeryl works intuitively not feeling constrained by particular methods. Processes and materials have linguistic connections with both text and the idea being explored. Repetitive elements and the meditative rhythmic process of making by hand play a fundamental role in her practice. Working with used materials is an important element in her work, as their intrinsic qualities provide a powerful starting point, meaningful process and outcome.
