INNER SOLITUDE I
Work based on the poem by
Christina Rossetti, 'Thread of Life'
Painted and hand coloured fabric, balsa wood
Hand and machine stitch on silk, cotton and calico
This piece of work, 'Thread of Life - Inner Solitude I was made in response to the death of my mother and the words of a poem by Christina Rossetti.
The process of making was cathartic and smoothed over a difficult time within the family dynamic. By using driftwood, a reference is made to a childhood growing up by the sea. The use of black acrylic which pools and creates its own shapes on the surface of the fabric gives the impression of footprints on wet sand
