Jennifer Galliott’s Statement
I continuously draw inspiration from the ocean and vast landscapes of Newfoundland. My work utilizes my personal memories and experiences of Newfoundland to evoke those of the viewer. I try and use recognizable human elements while remaining abstract enough that the viewer’s own memories are allowed to surface.
Each one of my tapestries are designed and woven by me. I find colour is very important within my weaving and designs. I spend a large amount of time collecting colours, weaving and unweaving until I get the desired effect.
