ARTIST INFO

About 

Selby Hurst Inglefield (b.1997) originates from Brighton and is currently based and works in London. Selby uses the technique of rug punching to create wall hung textiles. Her artwork focuses on themes of storytelling, autobiography and fantasy. Her practice often starts from personal writings, based on her own life and past. As she writes the initial autobiography tends to disappear, blending the lines between reality and fantasy. The stories, drawings and rugs have become a space where she explores ideas of comfort, nostalgia and safety within her practice. Selby’s interested in the link between safety and the relationship with the mundane domestic space and how she uses the concept of the domestic rug to create this safe space.

Statement about AOAP Submitted Artwork 

“These 4 floral scenes are made with each strand of wool being hand knotted. Enjoying the longevity of the textiles process. Made at the 'start' of spring dreaming about those summer months approaching. The first piece was made whilst still wrapped up in the studio and it seemed symbolic that the last one was completed whilst sunbathing in the park. A reward for completing a long winter.”
