The thread that binds us
Textile and Fibre
With each life given, represented by hands that give and receive, mothers pass flowers of character and love from one generation to the next. Shadows represent past maternal lineages, which in essence shape each successive generation. Loosely based on the Christian bible verse, Psalms 139:13, my intent was for my body of work to express the close-knit nature of maternal bonds and the gift of life that is carefully and intricately woven. Though each individual may be different, we are all bound by a thread of shared blood and family history – it is the red thread that connects us.
