Ness Donnelly was artist in residence at Bankley’s Studio 20 in May and June 2016. During this time she developed a series of Textile works and drawings based around the myth
of Penelope, wife of Odysseus in The Odyssey of Homer.
Donnelly is interested in the repetitive act of undoing and redoing. Deconstructing and then re-presenting the cloth, by removing threads and replacing them with new thread or leaving the space empty to change the form of the material.Similarly within her paper works she takes something away to leave a trace of the original behind.
