FOOTNOTES

Footnotes in progress, Toronto, ON ----( click image for more images )

Ongoing Project begun when I moved to toronto in 2013

At first glance, these artworks appear decorative, abstract, even baroque. The image elements however, are deeply informed by narratives embedded in my source materials and my approach to craft, through the handwork of textiles, sculptural objects, and painted surfaces, and through contextual notes. The patterns depicted are representations originating in the recesses of my clothes closet, and features garments fallen into obsolescence as my body and physical capacities have changed under the influence of Parkinson's disease.
