Malcolm Cruickshank, Edinburgh, Scotland
My fabric square is based on a 3x3′ square of car upholstery fabric. Onto this I ironed plastic shopping bags. All these rely on and are based on oil. Plastic bags are a hot topic of debate in the UK at the moment and the car upholstery fabric represents the automotive industry as a whole. Malcolm is a textile artist based in Edinburgh, Scotland. He often works with discarded materials and is a maker on www.craftscotland.org where further information is available.
