Vibrations 6. 1984 Esparto grass and wool 140x40cms.
Tadek Beutlich is a remarkable artist, he is a tapestry weaver, originally from Poland. He taught at Camberwell School of Art from 1951-1974. His later work is unusual because he works 'off the loom' to create these amazing abstract and figurative pieces. There is very little information available about him. I have never seen any of his work in the flesh and I think we are overdue a major show or publication about him. I found this image on the Embroiderers Guild website.
The Embroiderers Guild have an excellent publication called Embroidery which is a bi-monthly magazine - it features contemporary textile artists and traditional techniques but it is only really available from their shop in Hampton Court or by mail-order.
