Telling Tales

East member Vinny Stapley’s work investigates the extraordinary stories of ordinary women and the threads of life which connect them.

She has created delicate layered icons for each woman’s story, illuminating their struggles and victories.

Each icon is connected by ‘strands’ of their life; fragments of old clothes and household linens interwoven with silk fibres and printed extracts of their stories delicate like webs connecting their lives.
