Materials: Secondhand fabric, Cotton thread, Janome sewing machine.
Dimensions: Each 26x56 inches
Image Statement: This work is apart of a collect where I have abstracted city scenes into 6 surface pattern artworks and have remade them across different hand crafts, such as textiles, paper collage, ceramics, as well as digitally. This collection of 6 is recreated using secondhand fabric and appliqué machine sewing. To create a vibrant layered side to the front and then a more simple machine stitched outline side, which contrast each other. Throughout this work I’m thinking about repetition, shape, form and what it is to hang a banner.
