Approaching storm over the Humber: This photograph, taken from the north bank, was the starting point of my fascination with this place and an interest in the sublime. The overwhelming power of nature dwarfing the industry in the distance. The image is the spark which inspires my creativity. 

Then it starts to rain; a fine spring rain: I expose my canvas to the rain… …and I have the mark of the rain! – a mark of an atmospheric event.— Yves Klein, 1928 – 1962, Selected Writings”, ed. J & J, the Tate Gallery, London 1974, p. 61 

Interested in how to make works by unconventional means, without direct contact by the hand. I am inspired by Yves Klein. He strapped a canvas to his car and drove around in the rain to make a “recording” of the atmospheric conditions. 

About Annemarie Tickle

I am a Lecturer in Textiles at Hull School of Art and Design. As a visual artist I am interested in atmospheric conditions and events and how the scale of nature makes mans mark on the landscape look insignificant. I enjoy the act of doing and getting my hands dirty so my practice is intensly process led. I use a wide range of media but am particular interested in dying techniques.
