About > Statement
My work explores the passage of time and lingering memory of the present. Photographs of cloth-draped buildings under construction and statues frozen in stone become metaphors for existence and memory. Images are printed onto fabric with a wide format printer. Detailed sections are collaged and stitched onto the cloth, referencing earlier domestic practices of mending and repair, reuse and repurposing. The repetitive hand stitching creates shadows and textures, alluding to the marking of time. Each piece quietly takes its own shape as the threads are gently drawn and pulled through the cloth.
