Christabel Balfour is an artist and weaver, living and working in South East London. She studied at the Ruskin School of Fine Art where she produced woven sculptures and immersive installations.
Since graduating she has focused on tapestry weaving, as well as producing handmade papercuts. Her work seeks to combine the geometry of the city with the open spaces of the natural landscape, emphasising simplicity and tranquillity over complexity and chaos. She is interested in the soothing qualities of repetitive patterns, and the infinite variations of the handmade.
For ‘People in Process‘, Christabel is exhibiting the process behind her woven work, and allowing visitors to partake in a collaborative piece which will be created over the duration of the exhibition,
Christabel will also be giving a talk about her work at ‘People in Process – An Evening with the Artists‘, an intimate evening at the gallery for informal discussion over a glass of wine – book your space here.
