Silence Doesn't Paint The Depth...

I'm very excited about the new work I've been making and its time to go public with it, which also has me feeling a little bit nervous. I've been developing a technique called fragile embroidery, which involves finding ways to embroider on things that are often too delicate to withstand needle and thread.  I'll be exhibiting it in my first solo show in April 2013 at Studio Huddle in Toronto Ontario.  The show is titled Silence Doesn't Paint The Depth Of Quiet In That Room. You can read more about the show here.    The countdown is on as I only have two weeks to finish before most of the work is sent to the framers.  Here are photos of some of the work in progress:

  1. I have just spent some time with your blog, looking at your soldier work, and the eyelet series. I am so moved.

    This new body of work is amazing. Congratulations on it and warm good wishes for your exhibition.
