EXHIBITIONS    What Lies Beneath


Scope Galleries Warrnambool


Blankets and clothing have their utilitarian, necessary purpose to protect us from the elements, but they are significantly more than that in every society. I am interested in the shared social and cultural histories imbedded in these commonplace objects, intimately linked with the human bodythey gain meaning through use. We are received in cloth, and we leave in cloth, it follows us from the cradle to the grave. Inspired by the stories of these beginnings and endings, and the life in between I use stitch as a means to express emotions of life, love, loss, concealment and hidden secrets, the human stories and rituals contained under these everyday objects.
