Patchwork Man

About this project

The patchwork figure series was a journey into the darker aspects of self-portraiture using a linked glass fabric or armour as a container for the body. The covering looks strong but is visually light and delicate. The patch-working technique allows a moulded form to be assembled from small off-cuts in a similar way to patchwork blankets that are lovingly stitched together by grandmothers for the cradles of their new grandchildren.
