Neighbourhood

Lynn Morrell

Bermudian (b. 1951)

Fabric, thread

2004

Collection of Bermuda National Gallery. Purchase made possible by Dr. Thomas James in loving memory of his wife Caroline.

Multimedia artist Lynn Morrell works with metal, fabric, paper
and paint. Primarily a jeweller, she says: “My primary interest
is metalwork, but my second love is fabric. I have always loved
textiles and some of my earliest memories are of sitting at my
grandmother’s feet and listening to the rhythmic sounds of her
Treadle sewing machine, which I still have.”
Here, Morrell captures an aerial view of Bermuda’s densely
packed neighbourhoods, the whitewashed roofs abstracted yet
instantly recognizable.
