I have finished my free machine embroidered drawings of small, inconsequential details of damaged corners of buildings on Park Street, Bristol. I like the fact that details that we normally ignore can have a new meaning when their original identity is removed. But the new meaning is now about memory; days enjoyed with my boys in Bristol frequenting places that will now play an important role in the recollection of the years we have shared together before they venture off to a university in a new city. I think this is true for many of us – the importance of detail that once we may not have noticed until it becomes an inherent part of our past.
I now have to decide how to present my drawings for Art in Action, 2016.The original plan was to use the small drawings for gift cards, but I am now wondering if they could form series as above, or be individually presented, floating in frames?
