Drawn in marker on pages torn from notebooks, Pierre le Riche’s
Many of Pierre’s marker drawings were later reimagined as large, yarn-tufted tapestries towards his exhibition at THK Gallery, , which opened in May 2021. The presence of these bold silhouettes offers a new figuration in the artist’s practice. “While the tapestries are a continuation of his fibre-based work,” Sean O’Toole writes, “ the human subject was, until recently, implied rather than stated in Le Riche’s work.”
