DAPHNE INSTALLATION / THREADLINES SKETCHBOOK

In creating stitched drawings I am aware that I am creating two drawings simultaneously. The drawing on the front is the intentional line. The drawing on the back is the unintentional line that I cannot see as I work unless I turn the paper over. It creates a conundrum: what side/drawing do I want to show and how to display it? The solo show at University Liggett Schools afforded me the opportunity to create the Daphne Installation: 37 two-sided drawings, each 5.25 in h x 3.375 in w, suspended to show both sides. It combines references to women and the natural world and our human attempts to control one and/or the other.
