Project Title
Reflection & Invention: A Grandmother's Interior World
Description
The construction of these drawings utilizes the language of my grandmother’s interior world, translating the shifting programs into operative strategies for drawing. The regeneration of patterns and forms used in dressmaking become a process of redrawing and retracing, the linear operations in sewing become rendered treatments of layering, stitching and collaging. The linear qualities of the architectural drawing become the linking figures to my grandmother’s interior world. As mentioned by Rawes that geometries within a drawing are able to be reinterpreted as ‘an activity that is inherently constructed out of aesthetic experience, so that geometric figures become linked to the reflective powers of the individual subject.’
