Welcome to Claire Mort Artist, AKA Pop Goes The Stitch.
I am a British textile artist and my work is held in collections in Europe, Australia and the USA. I was a finalist this year in the National Needlecraft Awards and I am also a columnist for Be Creative with workbox magazine. I exhibit my work locally and nationally and I shall be exhibiting in London again this year at The Clerkenwell Gallery as part of the Society For Embroidered Work International Contemporary Stitched Art Exhibition. This will be held from 12th November - 17th November 2019.
My work is about the world around me and my experiences thus far. From social media and the changes in the world and people since I was little, to the #metoo movement, 100 years of suffrage, advertising, typography and everything in between.
My work although mainly female is not a feminist statement necessarily, as even though I have read and read and read... I am still not really sure I or anyone else really knows what that is. For me I just want to be treated fairly and with respect and I guess that's what most of us want really no matter what gender we are. However I am female, and how I experience the world influences my work. I am a member of SEW, Society For Embroidered Work. The aim of S.E.W is to promote and support artists who have an element of stitching in their artworks, hand or machine and traditional or contemporary forms of embroidery. I am also a member of the Embroiderers Guild.
Please pop in often as my content will be changing, with updates for exhibitions in my events page, new work on my instagram feed, and lovely new things in my shop.
