Superstition, music and sacred text collide in "Red Thread", a series of works by artist Jacqueline Nicholls. Embroidered red thread weaves together Hebrew text and images of the flowing movement of musicians including Brixton's Alabama 3, layering notions of individuality and the "other" in Nicholls' delicate work. Jacqueline sat on the stage and sketched the musicians as they performed. She depicts these vibrant pulsating musicians, overlaid upon the ancient written text, so that the work brims with energy and alludes to the red thread's fluttering symbolism of life in Middle Eastern culture and Kabbalah.
