Silk, glass beads, freshwater pearl, woven jacquard in sapele hinge double frame

The works in framework use the motif of the window to explore its potency as a symbolic portal. The embroidered tapestry works navigate a controlled visibility. In these intimate ‘display windows’, the curtains are drawn to the public stage, blurring the interior. Glass beads and freshwater pearls cover the surface, further obfuscating the act of seeing. The methods of display utilise found frames to blur the boundary between the real and the represented -the frame and the window – in order to create autobiographical works that explore interior space and identity.
The exhibition is accompanied by an original text ‘Soft Pastoral’ from Ella Frears
