I make landscape works that decentralize and fragment a sense of comprehending a view “at-a-glance” which has historically been a convention of depicting nature wrapped up in “appreciation” but also control and subjugation. In this work, drawings are translated into digital embroidery and in combination with painting, sewn linen and gesso engage qualities of shifting light. Garment making often provides both a physical and metaphoric structure in my work. The materials refer to traditions of landscape painting, while the thread image becomes part of the fabric itself.
