Started to bind some of the textile pieces, building a number finished works by ‘finalising them’ – the work is a combination of ideas that come from rethinking stab book binding techniques and the way in which the fans are held in the archive at the costume archive. Laying out the sublimation/smocking pieces onto their box structures they resemble coffins shrouded with flags – possibly of a very colourful nation!

  1. Very effective stylization of the attractive woman, absorbed in her sewing. Nice flowing purple cloth leading into the distance. Quite different, and somehow the same, as this woman resting from her sewing in a sunny garden, painted by American impressionist artist Frederick Carl Frieseke, http://EN.WahooArt.com/A55A04/w.nsf/OPRA/BRUE-8DP6G8. The painting can be seen at wahooart.com, and ordered as a canvas print.
