Artist statement: This is not Art, 2024. Part of a series of still life works that explore my studio through objects, books, and tools of my trade. Each work is a self-portrait using items to address different components of my life and work. To create the work, I have used hand embroidery with a painted acrylic background that references the woven woollen blankets I have in my studio. This work uses humour to address the delegation of fibre arts to a craft status. It incorporates woollen spools, my patriarchy cushion laden with pins and a spilt glass of red wine all subtle markers of the personal as political.
