Textile & Fibre, dying, embroidery, macramé
At the beginning of year 12 I was diagnosed with Osteosarcoma. My body of work employs textile practices that relate directly to notions of stitching, scaring and mending to express fear and vulnerability. Soutine's 'Carcass of Beef' puts mortality on display, paralleling my journey. The macramé carcass symbolises manipulated flesh and bone containing representations of toxic black internal organs transitioning into machine embroidered flowers representing recovery and rejuvenation. A playful nature is depicted through 'Theatre Of Distraction' and 'Rejuvenation Doll'. The colourful imagery is a distraction whilst also challenging the viewer to see the beauty sometimes surrounded by angst.
