Binded As We Move (2020)

£208.00

This original drawing was created during lockdown. The fabric in the drawing is attempting to move freely, but the gold thread captures it – pulling on its movement.

Description

The fabric in the drawing is attempting to move freely, but the gold thread captures it – pulling on its movement. These small spaces where the gold thread is placed add to the blue by highlighting areas and creating new shapes. This touches on a reoccurring theme in my work – exploring the balance between conflicting things: order and chaos, movement and holding on.

This original drawing is part of the Belief Series, (2020+) created during lockdown. The use of textiles and everyday materials aligns with my interest in womanhood. . They are intentionally feminine; embracing this delicate, subtle strength. I take inspiration from powerful and pioneering women who inhabit these qualities.

The drawings initially came through thinking about influences on me as a child – including Roman Catholicism and atheism. I thought about the women we are are told about in Catholicism – and what there real stories might be – Mary (Jesus’s mother) Mary Magdalene and the story of St Teresa of Avila. The gold and blue are inspired by the colours often used in religious paintings.
