THE ARTIFICER’S JOY | 2012



These embroideries bring together treasured possessions: the Irish linen I inherited from my father; the silk thread given to me by the proprietress of a haberdashery; and, finally, the French knot, a stitch I learned from the embroiderers of a carioca cooperative.

  • Irish linen, silk thread 
  • 60 x 35 x 10 cm (each piece)
  • EXHIBITIONS: ‘Errático, errante,’ Galeria Inox, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil
