Stitched - Woven - Drawn is a series of nine large and small illustrations inspired by the short story “Woven” by Lidia Yuknavitch, published by Guernica Magazine in 2015.
The original three illustrations were hand-traced renderings of bundles of textile debris in my studio. These drawn illustrations were then translated into 11 x 14 stitched illustrations, which were then translated into 18 x 24 stitched illustrations. Each piece is displayed in a handmade pine frame.
Space for Impatience
Space for Impatience begins an exploration into the necessity of making room for unwanted attributes in addition to desired ones. In the way that making room for aspirational qualities can have the effect of calling them into a person’s life, making room for undesirable qualities can ease the suffering that surrounds them. If a person is not bothered by their impatience, does it still move them to action?
