collithos 2

2020

Working in my usual free and intuitive way, I’ve begun making collithos with expressive faces, which I stitch directly on the machine in one single line.

‘let’s face it’

This series of faces was inspired by the pandemic and people’s reaction to social distancing. I chose to use bright colours as, for contrast with the grim situation, the series of faces was going to be stitched into a long bunting. The photo shows just part of the final ten metres long piece.

This series depicts the sudden and unsettling onset of an epileptic insult.
