Ladies & Gentlemen

About this project

This work is made in response to Darren’s collection of 1940’s ‘Stitchcraft’ magazines.  Vintage handkerchiefs and other textile finds all hint at past lives, these are reimagined here.  The textile items inform the choice of figurative image used and suggest possible narratives.  ‘Stitchcraft’ photographs and drawings provide the figurative element and ideas evolve from personal experiences, cultural references, film or textile histories.
