Alli Coate is a supremely talented artist, working over several different media.
She is adept at painting, drawing and animation, but it is her embroidered works that really get me excited.
She produces wonderful pieces – applique work, embroidered text, multi-layered stitchery marvels.
There is a terrific diversity to her work, yet it is underpinned by a quiet charm. Even “Domestic Violence”, twelve embroidery pieces in a refurbished window frame, is softened by the palette of muted tones and quaint fabrics.
Alli is an obvious talent, and the breadth of her output is admirable. I am always excited to see what she produces next, secure in the knowledge it will stir my soul.
