Remnant to Map

This week I will be dropping off work to show in the Spruill Gallery’s Emerging Artists 2011 exhibit opening August 4th. Here is a brand-new stitched piece, made on a remnant from one of my mother’s dresses.

Third Door on the Left - detail

The piece, composed as a long horizontal rectangle, shows a mental map, riffing off of locations and map-forms from the artists’ books and drawings in my thesis show. The stitched drawing marks intersections of roads and people, sites of exchange, and gathering conversations.
