woven jacquard tapestry works
Each woven piece begins as a drawing that is then translated via digital jacquard loom to create the finished tapestry.
Each tapestry features monochrome warp fringing and multicolour weft fringing. The unique works are embellished with silk and cotton hand-embroidery, freshwater pearls, and hand-beading. The process draws parallels with a printing practice, while striking a conversation between material and theme. The legacy of tapestry and embroidery is interwoven with conflicting values of female labour. This tension between domestic and professional positioning, alongside embroidery’s role as a vehicle of record and resistance, allow the medium to enhance the message.
