Hand stitching as radical act, 2020.
In a fast-paced world that values uniformity, machine made precision, perfection and material worth; slow hand stitching can be seen as a radical act. Subverting the contemporary norms of production and ascribing value, my practice embodies an attitude of meticulous imperfection. Immersive and meditative, I celebrate divergence, individuality and imperfection through my creative processes.
At the same time, meticulous in focus and application, my process attributes value to the humanity of the work – to the steady hand, the focused eye, the one-pointed attention, the creative flow and the dedicated heart.
