"Evidence"

It began in March 2020 and was completed in June 2020. It is cloth and thread, entirely hand stitched, with inclusions of photo printed coffee filters, tyvek, beads, felted wool, buttons, lace, and other little objects. This piece measures 5 feet 6 inches long by 6 inches wide.

Value: $lots NFS

“Evidence” is my Isolation Project number 3. I decided to move much slower in my artwork and picked up needle and thread and started to sew. My height is 5’6” so I wanted this piece to be a “measure” of myself and what I could do and say in slow stitch. There was no grand plan, I simply created in the moment. About halfway through, the title EVIDENCE was conceived. The inspiration was a post by a textile artist who, while visiting her dying father, did a lot of hand stitching at his side, which became her “evidence of a place in time”. This is evidence of my place in this time.
