Artist statement – Drawn into the landscape, a simple ‘beach’ sketch is lifted off the page into a 3-dimensional still-life. Covered with white fabric and edged with black lines, this tableau of objects stands as a relief from their rendered chalk shadows.
Through the transitional process of 2-dimentional imagery into 3-dimentional objects, the handmade techniques of sewing, cutting and weaving act as the visual language I used to communicate my physical surroundings. Exposed seams and dangling threads, engage the intrigued passerby with a tangible handcrafted object. Something they can easily connect to and have a sense of the process of making.
