Working between hand stitched visuals and digitally manipulated images. Selecting, layering, multiplying, changing the orientation, erasing; suggesting rock formations, tracks and trails. Creating possible starting points for Imagined Landscapes.
Drawing with stitches. Hand stitching onto various papers. It easier to pierce the paper first then stitch. Much of the stitching is worked on the front side of the paper, with stitches looping into previous stitches. very much like the way I work with experimental knitting. Next step is to scan the sample into the computer and work with the image to create for example multiples, overlays and so on. I am building up an image bank to take back into hands on print techniques such as etching or relief printing blocks in wood.
