Inspired equally by home textiles, colour field paintings and the integrity of the fabric, these works are more test than result, a giant, quilted, needlepoint sampler of sorts. This work is about vision and the blurry/buzzy eye that comes with colour field paintings and striped fabric.

These pieces are an experiment in materiality and planes of space that seek to be equally forward thinking and rooted in traditional making. The scope of former works are replaced with a scaling up of traditional textile techniques without becoming an unwieldy size.
