Through textiles and cloth we can communicate personal and social narratives and explore cultural identity. Textiles can be the link that brings people together in society and opens up shared values and concerns. They can also shape our ideas and identity. As an artist my work depicts constant connection between body and mind and how the two interplay to form both visual images and evoke emotional states of mind. The haptic qualities of cloth evoke ideas of both physical and emotional comfort, bearing witness to the lived experience of those who wear and handle it. These mediums almost have an unsurpassed ability to express ideas about the relationship between touch memory and longing. I explore the relationship between materiality and form, introducing ideas that move between art, psychoanalysis and sociological disciplines.
