To Skirt (detail)Medium: Sculpture (wall hung)Materials: painting support, dyed sheeting, silk thread.To Skirt investigates feminine process through the use and manipulation of materials that reference the body and the Domestic. Strategies are employed to transgress the boundaries of category, the work is neither painting or straightforward embroidery. The openings in each work and suggestion of function, invite physical investigation, making them more akin to sculpture. The reference to domestic stitching, suggests fragile, tactical almost covert support.
