I live near several lines of Pylons and I have become fascinated by them as I whizz by them on my bike rides. There seems to be a variety of shapes and sizes and their presence in the landscape is kind of strange. It seems almost mad that these lines of cables are hanging about in the sky just feet above us, and we barely notice them. Pylons are somehow invisible and concealed, yet they are massive structures striding out across the landscape. I am going to try to develop a series of stitched drawings of pylons. I like the idea of using stitch to depict something so huge and industrial. But also all those cables relate to my use of loose threads, threads and lines are coming together.
