Over the past couple of years, I've been particularly interested in sewing and knitting patterns as a collage medium.
They represent a mysterious and fascinating practical language that is unfortunately not being traditionally passed on or taught locally anymore.
Identity was once created from scratch with personalised love and pride, but has now become ever more disposable, using underpaid labour to make up for our lost time and skills.
Layering up the sewing templates exposed an organic visual map, both beautiful in itself and as a guide to my use of paint to make new documents, palimpsests.
