Referencing religious symbolism and spiritual protection, Kirsten Sutherland’s collection of digitally embroidered works visualise the lineage of hex signs and Amish quilt designs. Hex explores the contentious nature of the sacred geometric signs, reimagining traditional symbols in a contemporary context.

Sutherland was the main digital embroiderer for
The Hobbit and has created pieces for hotels, retail spaces and fashion designers.
