Vintage Textile Transformations by Mr. Finch

The self-taught artist Mr. Finch is part hunter, part gatherer and fully genius. Obsessed with the rolling hills and mossy woods near his home in Yorkshire, Finch goes gathering for inspiration. "Flowers, insects and birds really fascinate me with their amazing life cycles and extraordinary nests and behavior", says the artist. He then goes hunting for vintage textiles; velvet curtains from old hotels, a threadbare wedding dress or a vintage apron and transforms them into all sorts of beasts and toadstools. The aged feel creates a sense of authenticity, or mystery as if each piece has an incredible story to tell.
