Background, history, commissioner of the work

This work was originally made for my undergraduate degree show, in New Zealand. It was then shortlisted for the Aesthetica Art Prize 2015 and exhibited in York St Mary's. The work took about 200 hours to make.

Thematic/contextual information

This work explores languages of drawing, through an engagement with surface, line, gesture and process. Conflating drawing and soft sculpture, the work hints at three-dimensionality yet exhibits characteristics of drawing - a flat surface as a ground, and lines created through processes of cutting and stitching. Whilst gestural the form is a product of meticulous labour, an encounter through fabrication that represents an interiorisation and antidote to mediated experience.
