Is there anything more visually stunning and supremely tactile than the gorgeous stuffed creatures of self-taught Leeds textile artist Mister Finch? His sculptures are so incredibly charming and sophisticated in character I just want to reach out and give them a squeeze. (Wouldn’t mind giving this beautiful gent a squeeze myself!)
Collecting textiles from all over and combining them with scraps of scattered, lost and unwanted objects and mediums, he hand stitches elements of the forgotten and discarded and breathes new life into them in his own fantastical way. Their antique qualities evoke the ancient world of fairy-tales and the mysterious otherworldly stuff of dreams, as he weaves and stitches their stories together.
