Their Exits and their Entrances silk mosaic, Lucienne Day, 1981

After the constraints of designing repeat patterns for printed fabrics, Lucienne appreciated the freedom of creating one-off pieces. This hanging explores variations on a theme: each square contains a different ‘image’, most purely abstract but some evoking doorways and avenues of trees. The title evokes her love of the Theatre.
