Pittcroft Whip Ha detail II copy

Pittcroft Whip Ha’, pigment and dye on folded and stitched cloth, 130 x 70cm, is Matthew Harris’ completed cloth artwork for Field Notes. The name makes reference to fields listed on the ‘Leeke Survey’, a historic record of the carving and cutting up of land where fields have become fragments, floating free of any surrounding landscape. One of the starting points for Field Notes project was a visit to the Shropshire Archive which has an inspirational collection of ancient maps.
