The textile artist is showing at the Rebecca Hossack gallery from 7-30 November.

Here’s what the site has to say: “Karen Nicol‘s new exhibition is a Singerie, the French word for ‘monkey trick.’ Singerie is a genre that was first found in the eighteenth dynasty of Egypt and made hugely popular in 18th Century French Rococo art, in which artists satirically depicted monkeys wearing fashionable dress.”

I’m heading to the private view tonight, and have interviewed her for Mollie Makes in the current issue
