Loose Threads and Mending Series Artist Statement
These series of handstitched collagraph monoprints and etchings explore threads through time linking the past with the future and the nature of time passing. Assembled monoprints use discarded and stitched fabrics as the backdrop for timeless etched marks and stitches, many of which are handsewn onto bits of handmade asian papers. Elements combine to express the quiet essence of time passed slowly - yet fleeting - as loose threads evoke unfinished work and cast ephemeral shadows on the paper below.
